  • My Motion Composites Apex came with a narrow velcro belt. I don't use it and would be happy to send it to you if that works.

    Well, the discomfort got bad enough last night through to this morning that when I woke up I decided to take another bottle of mag citrate. I feel absolutely awful about using that stuff, but felt like I didn't have a choice. So, as expected, a big loose result today, and I'm following it up with eating...

    Prior to the colostomy I used to take acacia fiber powder everyday. But afterward I was advised that heavy fiber isn't necessarily beneficial once you have the colostomy, so I've backed off. I'm still not sure if the intent there was to mitigate fiber intake during the recovery phase, or something more...

    Definitely think hard before jumping on something like this. My seating specialist told me it would be the perfect balance between good support for transferring and comfort in pressure management. But I hate it and stuck with the regular Roho! To each her own....

    I have a 16x18 Roho Elite Hybrid cushion (40x48 cm) that I just didn't like so barely used it. If that's something you're interested in. I'm visiting family today, but will be back home this weekend. I paid $165 and would like to get it back.
