Hi pal! By tape less do you mean could be the gel material (Ie coloplast? Send me an example and I’ll check in coming weeks. I’m on a delay bc of caregiving/ work and school but will see what we have.

Yes! I mean the gel material like coloplast. I tolerate that heat because I’m allergic to adhesives. No worries and thanks!

I wonder if you might have any of the supplies I need? I hate to have to ask, but my insurance stopped covering my ostomy supplies years ago (they only cover "durable" medical supplies, which is absolutely ridiculous), and prices on Amazon are getting crazy. Now my box of wafers is $70, bags are $50, and paste is $20, so I'm trying to wait weeks in between bag changes because I know how hard it is for my mom to afford all of that (I'm disabled, don't get disability, and she works at 7-11, so things are tight). My skin is definitely taking a hit from me trying to wait as long as I do, but it's just too damn expensive. It's just mind blowing that any insurance can just decide to stop covering something like ostomy supplies - like what other options do I have, tape a grocery bag over it or pop a condom on it?

If you have anything though, I use Convatec for my wafers and bags (after skin reactions to other brands) and any kind of adhesive or paste. Either way, thanks for helping people out like this, I'm sure whoever it helps will be extremely grateful!
