Real roller coaster rides

Fri Oct 01, 2021 7:50 am

Hi to all my adventurous ostomates...

   Im headed to see my son and 3 highly active grandkids next week and my Son  tells me we're going to Kings Dominion (a amusement park) to ride the coasters . The last time I'd been there I vomited on workers shoes , and sweated like crazy and had to stop riding the rides . I was taken by ambulance to a Virginia hospital where I was diagnosed with low potassium and low sodium ( nothing new to me ) . This was all before my surgery. 
   Now that I'm toten a bag , has anyone experienced issues with the rides ,especially the bars to hold you in ? Or your bags going fast and upside down ? I'm trying to prepare myself for a hopeful fun day ...

Thankyou in advance for any input and happiness for my output ! ...Ritz

These are the top 5 issues ostomates face:

1. Dating and relationships
2. Concealing the pouch
3. Foods to eat and avoid
4. Losing or gaining weight
5. Pouch ballooning

In all candor, Ritz, the only time since my surgery that I went on a roller coaster (with one of my little girls), I was so freaking scared it never even occurred to me to be concerned about the damn bag.

Ritz,

just pace yourself and see how you feel as you go. I'm sure your son and grandkids will understand if you don't feel like going on the rides. They'll be happy just tI have you there!

Maybe drink some Gatorade to help with electrolytes?

Have fun!!!!

Oh , I'll have my added electrolytes and sodium tabs . I was more concerned about the bag with those seatbelt bars . Any experience with them ?

If you could take a ride on what they call "The Well of Death" in an amusement park here, you would think that riding a roller-coaster was as easy as riding a dodge-em car! Take the middle seats if you can, the front and back seats are scarier and SCREAM if you want to, takes care of some of the fear. Have fun.

Ritz on a roller coaster...........Yee - Haaa!

 

I hope you don't pop either!!  If I'm there that weekend I'll make sure to sit IN FRONT of you.........not behind!  What a story that would make for some poor unsuspecting kid. 

So Johnny......how was the roller coaster ride?  Well Dad........it was fun.......until the lady in front of me got so scared she pooped on us!!!  Ah.....to be a kid again..........

Are you sure the middle is less scary ? I'm not sure if I should believe you !! I guess I'll sit where my grandkids pull me to

Yes, the view from the front seats is terrifying. Some of us ride the roller coaster everyday many ups and downs, the French call it montagnes russes, Russian Mountains for some reason. Ces't la vie. All the best wishes.

I rode the Batman coaster at Six Flags when it was first built.  If I survived that witout incident, you should be fine!

It's really not a problem no matter which ride. Relax and have fun. I'm sure the kids will occupy your mind and you will forget about it.

Hi Ritz,   If y o uve always rode coasters,    t hen go for it.   I grew up in Brookyn, and never had the nerves to go on the cyclone, and even when  went on kiddie coasters, or the run away train,    I was having angst,.   My 5  year old said " isn't this f un mommy, and mommy just wanted to " barf".     but I never popped. The only place  i did that was in the dead sea, in Israel..  The salinity of t he water, made the  bag, pop off from the w afer..   That was a mess, but nothing  that a shower, and tape couldnt  help...   These days,  I would  just use extra tape, to tape the bag to the flange, and even tape the / and the bag to the skin..   Never had problems with t he " flume's either..   although I came off those rides soaked...   don 't wear see through ( white )   pants...    Let me know when you'e in NJ...  wo uld love to meet up..    Have fun ...

Hi Ritz,

  Remember you asked a while back why you should wear a belt with your bag..........I'd say roller coaster riding would be a good reason..........

Have fun!!!

Marsh ...I'll be sure never to visit the Red Sea ! I'll only be in New Jersey one night with my son ,old friends and laying my late husband to rest . I'm hoping to schedule another trip after your winter to Hersey alone for a couple weeks ...so most definitely more time to meet up with you then !

Ritz...ps , I road the cyclone at the worlds fair ! I got cotton candy stuck in my long hair ..I should have listened to my mom and had her hold it !
