I am back from Thailand and I survived!
My skin is a mess, the heat and the sweat made my appliance very itchy and I had to change the flange almost every day, but I would do it again in a heartbeat!!
I have added some pictures to Photobucket.
I dont have any full body shots as I was the one taking pictures all the time.
I had no problem swimming or lazing on the beach and felt very comfortable in my 2 piece suit. I found some great board shorts that were high rise and used a band-aid to cover the small bit of my appliance that showed.
I flew via Japan and believe that the PM of Japan must have IBD - the toilets had buttons that allowed you to play noise to cover any sounds and they had a special room with 'ostomate facilities'.
I wish Canada was as sensitive!
