OMG, Slice, you crack me up.
My stoma is active constantly, even if I haven't eaten. So, no stoma caps for me!! In fact, my stoma doesn't ever stay quiet for more than about 5 minutes. I have to change bags quick!
But, I, too, am surprised at all I can do with my intestime hanging out of me. Yesterday I had my first dodgeball practice since surgery. I got wacked with the ball right in my stoma. Maybe not so good for it, huh? I'm trying to think of a good way to protect the little guy...haven't come up with anything yet.
Anyway, back to topic - showing off our stomas...at the gym this week I had on a one pice, clear bag. So - y'all know, they ain't to purty when they're a couple days old. My pants slid down a little, and I realized I was flasinh my Personal Trainer with my bag o' poop. He was sweet and didn't freak out, but still, poor guy got a lesson in what a stoma looks like, that's for sure. So, I say go for it. Show it off. Who cares? Now that I'm an official flasher, I'm not so scared anymore.
