I used to have to wake up during the night to empty my bag, but now I use irrigation sleeves, they are long bags, they go down to my knee so I also have a Velcro strap to keep it attached to my leg so it doesn't get pulled off, it works extremely well
I suggest for you all to try it!
thanks, Dusti

Diagnosed with colonic inertia at 13 years old, had my colon removed

Diagnosed with rectal inertia at 16 years old, had my rectum removed and had a jpouch made.

Diagnosed with small bowel inertia at 18 years old, and got an ileostomy wich I still have.

If you want to know more, just ask me!

excellent idea!! My daughter was wondering if there is anything she could do so she wouldnt have to get up so much in the night, I will ask the nurse if this might work for us too.
Thanks
