so wedneday i was convinced my bag was leaking, so i went to change it, which really made me ill because our insurace is screwed up and i had just changed onmonday and am trying to get as much wear as possible. So i change, and there is no leak and i'm like UGH. Anyway, i'm trying really hard to make sure i dont mess anything up so i wont waste anything. And i change the wafer then get the bag on and get stood up to fix the bag the right way. Well as i start to get the bag on the right way, i start getting output, which goes all over the bag, which is gross, and so, i think oh i'll just toss it in the sink and rinse it out. WELL that was not a good idea. Because now i have no bag over my stoma, there is poop coming out (not a lot, but any poop is too much) and im trying to rinse a bag and hold a towel square over my stoma. so anyway, i get the bag rinsed out, but then realize it is now soaking wet, like dripping soaking wet and i cant get it on because its so slippery and slimy feeling. so i grab a new bag and put it on. Then i get all fixed up and done. And look in my sink, and there is the bag laying in the sink, and thank goodness i didnt put it on, because one side of it had poop all over it! i guess the poop got on it when i rinsed it out of the bag.
So needless to say, that bag went in the trash and the bleach came out by the gallon!!! i normally would never ever put that in the sink, cause um, ewwww! So i cleaned the sink like, literally four times, and then poured bleach down the sink drain, just in case.
