Don't ya just hate when...

You just finish a HUGE meal and suddenly you get super itchy and stingy, but there is no way you can change the bag without a tremendous mess making it nearly impossible to accomplish and get a good seal!?!?! Ugh!

Merry Christmas!

Makes me wonder, have any folks with ostomies ever dared to go to an All You Can Eat joint?

Woohoo! One more pro for getting that ostomy!

Since food tends to go through way faster, I'm curious if you would actually eat more than normal :P

I know I certainly do! The first few months after surgery there is an adjustment period of eating small frequent meals, but now I am a regular piggy.

I personally think an 'All you can eat' would be perfect for us. Just put a bucket under me and let me go! We had a lovely member here (a emergency tech if I recall) who suggested it.

I'm up for it....anyone else?

I'm in also.
Went on a big car adventure today. A bit like griswald family vacation, and without word of a lie I ha to burp bag every hour. I was just so full of hot air. So maybe I should wait for the gas to go before the Buffett.

Janette that happens to me ALL the time - even without being drunk!
All over the seat, On the floor, around the toilet rim, even flicked on the wall. And me.
Once I was out shopping and this happened. I was in a large disabled restroom, the toilet paper was the lousy stuff that disintegrates when wet and of course I had poop on my hands too. So I had to cross the room to get some paper towel and of course forgot to do up my pouch in my panic. More poop everywhere, all over my clothes and all over the rest of the room that I'd missed first time around.
Needless to say I went straight home.
After cleaning up the room.

Splash back horrors!!
I never learn!
I've hit walls, doors, seats, cisterns, clothes (top and bottom), shoes (even got a piece of peanut wedged between my toes - disgusting!), hands, legs and even face!!
The face splash gave me a hell of a fright - gross.
