I'm with you.. I can't imagine changing it out in a public restroom like that. I too lay out my "stuff", but I suppose if I had to do it, I'd find a shorter method, probably without as good a cleaning or the paste, just to make do til I could do it "right". Well, thinking about it, I'm sure I could if I had to. What would be the alternative. Amey always has her supplies with her too.
Keep in mind that Amey's output is not the usual ileostomy output either. So she can be a quick change artist!
Please keep us updated on your opinion of the Cymed. I'm curious to hear if you like it and if it "sticks" for you.
I have on the Cymed Microskin One piece system w/o the washer. I think it's great. I to don't like the tail closure that comes w/the bags.Mine leaked some deodrant drops so I switched it to the CONVATEC clamp closer. I only got two sample from Cymed.The other bag has the washer built into it which I cant use as my colostomy is in a bad spot in a crease below my ribs in the transverse colon.Mine is called a transverse loop colostomy. So far so good. The bag is staying & I used an Eakin seal by mistake around my wafer. I just read a little bit ago that your not suppose to use any extra supplies when you put the bag over your stoma.
