My contents are always very thick and annoying slow to move through my stoma. It takes hours for stuff to pass and it drives me crazy. I always rinse my bag out with a bottle of water because I cannot stand having any puffiness to my bag and I have to rinse it to get it to lay flat under my pants. Plus, it makes me feel cleaner...dont ask me how or way...it just does. I even have to clean my stoma when I empty my bag because of content build-up. For most people this does not make any sense because their bag is just going to fill again in an hour. However, for me, my bag only get some contents a couple times a day. I rarely have anything in my bag so having contents or a stoma packed with poop drives me crazy.
