On the heels of her first informative clip, “The Difference Between a ‘One Piece’ and a ‘Two Piece”, the flame-haired performer, who underwent ileostomy surgery in 2019 for ulcerative colitis, openly discusses the pros and cons of each system and why a one-piece works best for her.
She notes that each appliance system serves a different purpose, but people with active lifestyles may enjoy the freedom of a one-piece over a two-piece. “The first time I used a one-piece was because they were sold out of the two-piece that I needed… I was amazed once I put it on, I was like ‘I feel like I’m not wearing anything’, whereas the two-piece is so bulky.”
Of the video series, Alex says that “my hope is that by providing these free educational resources, I can empower others to live more comfortably and not only survive, but thrive in their bodies. My health journey has required a lot of trial-and-error, and my goal with this video series is to save other ostomates the time and stress of figuring it out on their own.”
