I am just wondering if anyone else has a lot of output in the morning.  Some mornings mine is really crazy!  Like this morning I woke up a 7 and the bag looked like it was fixing to blow up, lol.  Then by 8:30 i had emptied it the time at 7 and two other times.  Now, granted I do tend to empty it a little too sonn, but that still seemed like alot, it is like that alot of mornings, but then through the day I don't have to empty it hardly at all.

Yep. In the morning is the worst for me. I wake up pretty full and it's very active afterwards. Then it slows down during the day....

Yep, I always wake up with the Good Year Blimp on my belly - it's mostly gas though. The gas subsides during the day cos I eat and my tummy has stuff in it to digest.
I have had an ileostomy for 31 years now due to UC.

I stay active every morning till about 11 or 12. May empty 4-6 times than it calms down till about 7 than empty once or twice more before bed. When I wake up during the night, which I do every night, as soon as I get up it will get active. In the begging it wasn't that way. I stayed active even during sleep and had many accidents in beginning. Probably why I wake up now every 4 hrs worried about another accident. But thankfully it has not happened in the last 9-10 months.

i think it's odd how as soon as I get up i can feel my tummy start to rumble and stuff comes out. It seems like it would at least take a few mintues. But I'm glad to know that seems to be the norm, thanks eveyone!

Do the "vented" bags really work? I'm a little cautious -- -how can the air escape, but not the liquid? I, too, usually have a mini Goodyear blimp when I sleep thru the night.

i have those vented bags, and they work for the first day or so, but then after that, they don't work anymore. If the vent gets clogged up, it won't work
