Reply to "Permanent Ileostomy to a K-Pouch or BCIR?"

I just read messages back a year and I feel so bad for all those who have unnecessary bathroom situations. First for girls I’ll tell you what works great as we get to Cary purses. I carry a sturdy plastic cup and syringe in a zipper side of my purse. I fill up my cup with water at the sink before going into the stall. People just assume I’m thirsty. If I am worried about it I simply add a bottle of water to my bag. This way I can add water to my pouch to make it more liquid and easier to empty. Adding water with the syringe spreads up the process as well and then I use the water and syringe to rinse my catheter all in the stall. I return everything to my bag and go to the sink just to wash my hands like everyone else. Yes I would like to carry a smaller purse but the ease, speed and privacy is worth it. A man could use a fanny pack or a back pack. Practice at home a few times to get it down. It makes the whole thing really very easy. Oh, and the handicap stall always has a handy shelf by the toilet to sit your cup.
