Im three weeks post op, so some friends wanted to get me out of the house so we decided we would do movie and dinner. Before going out I decided to change my pouch and take a shower. Well, my hubby usually helps me with changing it. He thrives on the fact he can cut it closer and honest does a much better job than I can do. Sometime while cutting the wafer he had to clip the top of the pouch. So we get dressed, go to a movie theater watch a movie, went to olive garden, ate and talked for a long time. I emptied the pouch right before leaving the restaurant. By the time I got home I was exhausted, first time I had really been out that long. I got out of my clothes and climbed into bed. after just a few minutes I felt something, turn on the light, poo all down the front of me.... It was awful and so fast. I couldnt even jump up out of bed because it would have went everywhere. My hubby grapped a sheet and led me to the shower where again we changed the pouch after showering. Right at the top of the pouch was a perfect slit. Either he accidently cut it, or it came that way cause it was perfectly straight. How did I go all evening and it not leak. I have liquid output, God was with me, and funny now but what a mess.

ok, you said you emptied right before you left the hospital?  Did you go out to eat when you left the hosptial?
 
Anyway, heres a tip, never change right before you are going somewhere! 

Anyway, you got super lucky, thats great!  And you had a fun time, woo hoo!
