So I need to get some ideas from my friends here ...

When I had my ostomy, and when I was emptying my bag, I always dreaded getting hit in the face with toilet water pellets!!

Now that I have my JPouch, my bum hates getting splashed whenever I have a bowel movement. It's bad enough we have diarreah like potty, but mixed in with toilet water make cleanup a LOT harder!! :)

So, is folding toilet paper and putting it in the bowl prior to release the only answer? ;)


Thanks!

Why Cipro? Do you have Pouchitis? When is a good time to call you? I would like to talk to you but don't want to bother you with the new baby and all :)))

at home, fix your toilet where the water doesnt come up as high, thats what i have done in my bathroom, then it wont splash up on you!
