      As a nurse I can truly say that I LOVE EDGEPARK!!! They are the best nationwide. They are the only DME company that I suggest.

      @Michinslim,
      Hello, I am an oncology nurse. You should have been assigned an ostomy nurse to demonstrate how to apply the baseplate. I'm going to assume that you are going to be radiated in the neck area given your diagnosis. Greg would probably be the best to describe his experience with the radiation. Until then... I hope this helps.

      I have had radiation twice on the neck, jaw, throat area. That's unusual because most people will only have radiation once on an area in their life. I have written a couple of articles over the years about the side effects of radiation for head and neck cancer patients. Here are the links:

      http://bit.ly/2hJc9ck What to Expect From Radiation

      I am always available to answer questions, as are many of our community. Just post on the questions page anytime you have a question. We hope you do well with radiation.
