I may be going to Louisville, KY by bus in February. This will be approximately 10 hours, give or take. My ileostomy was the result of emergency surgery on 10/31/08 (happy halloween!!!) I am still having problems figuring out what causes me major diarrhea, and what wont cause problems. I take 2 Immodium, when I start having major problems, and usually eat some bread. I can take anything I want on the bus to eat, except alcohol. Which wouldn't be a problem, since I don't drink. <G> My concern is making a HUGE mess in the bathroom on the bus,or having a leak, and not being able to resolve it. I'm still not real good at replacing my appliance. I go to wound care 3 times a week, and they change it twice a week currently for me. I am open to suggestions.
