    The bottles seem to last forever I usually use one for about 6 months and then just replace it with a new one just because I have a bunch of unused ones I have never had a problem boarding airplanes I do pour out the water before going through security Easy to refill once you get aboard Things may be a little tighter since the Underwear Bomber However just offer to show the guards your stoma if they doubt you Happy douching laurence likes this Share this post Link to post Share on other sites JueBug23 20 Member Members 20 32 posts Posted 5 March Girl I totally understand It s a messy job and not pleasant to do I trained as a nurses aide and never expected to have to perform duties for myself For drainage bags you can rinse them BUT be careful with this If you have any problems with your flange adhering to your skin you aren t going to want to introduce water next to your stoma Only the first couple inches If you roll up your tp around your finger gloved or ungloved your preference to clean around the rolled or clamped area that works nicely Baby wipes work well I prefer unscented The closed system bags I find are adisadvantage for several reasons First and foremost you have to change them After my surgery my stomach was very painful I didn t want anything extra to have to do with pressure more than once a day Second the convenience of being able to dump the bag if needed while I m running errands I don t like doing it but I have had to because my bag has filled quicker than expected That brings up another thing if your out and your bag fills and you ve forgotten to bring a replacement I think for the usual patient with a typical ostomy we are to have 4 7 empties a day I m not typical as I love coffee and my mornings are more than 6 typically and 4 or 5 in the evening The clean up isn t all that difficult once you get into a routine When I was washing my bags for my colostomy I had a cup 8 oz I ran cool water in before I sat down in the bathroom I used it to pour just a little at a time splash it around dump pour more splash dump three times It s good to have any other supplies you need for bathroom in right there handy I also bought a shower chair to have to sit in front of the stool Just in case I made a splash back on it it would be easier to clean up I don t know if any of this helps you I hope it will Wish I would have thought of Royost dishsoap bottle idea sooner I like that one But your welcome to message me here or my personal
