I'm hoping that I might be able to get some advice. My wife has a high-output ileostomy, and wears an "overnight" bag all the time. She still has to empty it multiple times throughout the day and night, and every time she does, there's a moderate chance of stuff splashing out of the toilet. The splash range is more than 24"/60 cm, and I'm finding it almost every night when I go to shower: floor, walls, toilet back, and seat. They vary from nearly-pure liquid stool to splashes of water with only a little stool. My wife seems not to even see it; certainly when she's emptying her bag at night, she's half asleep anyway, and even during the day, a lot of the time she's ill and has poor situational awareness.
I'm finding this incredibly frustrating. I'm trying to be patient, but I can't just ignore the splashes. The toilet is beside the shower, and willingness to step on, sit on, or rub against stool is beyond me. I hate having to spray/wipe the area before I shower, and to turn on the light to check things before I use the toilet at night. Can you suggest any tips to reduce the splashing? All I can think of would be for her to empty her bag into a container, then pour that into the toilet, but that would create a new set of complications.
Thank you for any advice you can offer.
