thanks for that explanation I appreciate that ..
I couldn't quite figure out why anybody really uses a toilet anymore..for emptying the bag like you and most others do..
I haven't used that method you speak of since 2016, when I had my permanent ileostomy and I got to tell you something I found something a little bit better than what Alex recommended.. although that is a pretty good idea, I didn't think about that trying to flush as you empty your your bag but I think you might need a third hand someplace you know what I mean ?? cuz when that bag starts swinging ...forget about it...
so what I would like to recommend is a can a coffee can or what I do use is those little water containers that you get when you go to the hospital they fill it with ice and they give you a cup..a pitcher... little pitcher..yeah that's what I use..
I've been using that for quite a long time and I got to tell you whether it's a liquid output or a solid, it sure beats kneeling and bending over a toilet.. that Splash is gross!! it is so ridiculous!! it gets all over the place!! I guess you can call that "backsplash" right??
so I basically empty into this can or this container and usually I fill it with just a little water prior to that.. if it's really thick I just add more water at the sink in the bathroom and I got to tell you this thing works for me at least when I'm home.. when I'm out there's another story but at least you should be comfortable at home you know like Cheech and Chong says: " I got to go to the can man"
I think you'll find it very helpful.
yes it is an " ewww" moment and method but u got more control of where the shit goes..
also while at sink whatever residue is left on bag end u just use faucet to wash it into the container. wipe clean.
anyone else try this? ...Warrior
