Reply to "everyone list best trick to enter full/tight pouch"

I empty my bladder first before I try to intubate...makes it easier and takes the pressure off of the valve...I like to keep my pouch clean...so I have only fluids in the morning and that allows me to get a good, empty and then only eat small meals throughout the day...I graze more than eat whole meals.
When my valve is a pain, I empty my bladder a second or 3rd time, use olive oil on the tube (the older ones are stiff so I use them) and tyr first with a strain one, then a curved...if still I do not succeed then I use the strait one and aim up, to the left, right and finally downward. I have a floppy valve that changes positon and requires a bit of ingenuity to get in there...
Change positions too, standing, sitting, twisting in different directions...
Whatever works today will not work tomorrow...so be patient.
