Hello to all my fellow female ostomates,
You know how we all figure out our own routines for dealing with our ostomies? Some from advice from others, and some, we just come up with ourselves? Well, something I've been doing since the beginning, a very simple trick, maybe something that all you ladies already figured out, but it occurred to me that some might not have. You might all say, "well, duh!", but here it is. When I'm emptying my pouch, and I am wearing a top, shirt, blouse, sweater, whatever, that hangs past my waist, which pretty much all my tops do, in order to get things out of the way and make the emptying process easier, I simply tuck the bottom of my top under the band of my bra. It makes a big difference. Hopefully this will help some.
