we have alot of threads that start out that way, lol.
I am going to have to go to the gynocolgist soon, (dont' want to!) and i am wondering, what do you do with your bag during the "exam" you have to take your undies off so you can't leave it tucked there, i am thinking i should tape it up?

LOL. I asked this exact question when I went about a month ago! I didn't do anything with it. I just told my gyno that I had had a colectomy and ileostomy, and then I folded it up when I laid back and "assumed the position". My gyno never even seemed to notice it, and certainly wasn't bothered by it. Since you're just lying on your back, just flipping the tail up seemed to work.

Good luck at your appointment - I hate going, too. This is going to be brash, but I wish I had one crevice that didn't need docotrs up in it all the time. (Sorry for that, but it's true, and if I can't say it here, where can I?????)
If at first you do not succeed, then skydiving is surely not meant for you.

My annual is July 8th -- Jo, that's just what I do. Summer, don't overthink it. Tape would be fine as well.

Good to say hello.

My gynecologist didn't blink, either. She just went ahead with the pap. Hope it goes well for you.
