So It's that time of day, Bag change day. If your like me and Has to be as clean as possible, then coming to terms with the bag and changing it over a first must have been hell, all the nurses were so quick and didnt really care how much they cleaned it, whereas i was worried it would smell or leak if i didnt clean it properly enough. And I still like to change my bag so its sparkling... well as much as it can sparkle! So here is a picture of my process. And my key items being Wet wipes, pelican wipes, white cloth wipes and niltac spray! My nephew has even helped me change my bag over, he loves what he calls "jadey's little squidge" and hes so helpful and listens to everything that needs to be done. He even told his school friends i had a outside will that poo's on my tummy! Gotta love how children describe things!
Afraid of leaving the house for the day? Afraid you might leak on a night out? or a day trip somewhere! Don't panic! The likely hood of any of us leaking on different occasions is rare anyway, these bags are strong, secure and smell free. And a leak is not a leak, it's slow and not immediate, you will realise before anyone else does. If your worried, simple.... 4 little things, A spare bag, A disposable bag, your little scissors & wet wipes. All very easy and compact-able into a tiny clutch for those cheeky nights out or any day when your just carrying a normal handbag, and these things are so easily compact that men, they WILL fit into your pockets.
Hey, Just a little bit about myself, I had Ulcerative colitis for 7 years, and now I've got an ileostomy bag. I'ts changed my life for the best, and I'm finally being the 23 year old I should be.
