Brand new member here; I get my ostomy in 3 days. I know it will be a while before I go out for anything other than appointments, but I'd like to know: what are the key essentials I will need in my "go bag"? I don't want to have to carry a trunk around, so I know I can't be prepared for every situation, but what items would be good for most situations, most of the time? Also, what would be good to carry? I'm not a fanny pack kind of guy, and I don't want to suddenly start carrying a "murse". A backpack seems overkill (and unwieldy for carrying everywhere all the time.) I'm sure I'll have more questions as I wrap my head around my new reality, and I appreciate any/all advice you "pros" can provide. Thanks!
