I just don't undertstand people's hesitancy to fly with an ostomy.
Personally, I feel like I LOVE flying now that I'm not worried about diarrhea!!! That's the whole reason that you GOT your ostomy, right? So you could LIVE YOUR LIFE? Don't let this stop you!!!
And seriously, what's the worst that could happen? They go to do a pat down and you go, "Um, just so you know, I have an ostomy and you should be careful." And then they go, "What is that?" and you either pull out a doctor's note or you explain that it's a bag of poo and you go on your merry way. Right? Am I wrong? Seriously, I don't feel a bit awkward about that. THEY'RE the one that's going to feel awkard.
Christine, if you want to go on a trip, GO ON A TRIP!! Enjoy your freedom!
