Not really sure why or how to tell this tale but I thought I'd share this
On Monday of last week, I had a colonoscopy. My second since the operation, a permanent colostomy 3 years ago
That night, Monday, I changed the appliance and bag and added the usual Adapt lubricant and deodorant
Went back into the office on Tuesday. As in the past, it takes me about a week to have a solid bowel movement after that procedure. I pass gas for most of the week through the bag. No big deal.
Anyway, the men's room on my floor has a row of sinks, urinals, and stalls along one wall
On Friday around noon time, I needed to pee and as usual, I take the first stall on the end nearest the urinals. It's one of those typical office stalls where the walls are about 2 feet off the floor and about 3 feet open from the ceiling.
Anyway, I notice that my bag has some air so I elect to empty it before going out for lunch. I open the bottom of the bag, like I've done all week, and squeeze the bag to push the air out. Only this time I get lots of bubbles and they float over the stall walls into the room.
Not sure what the other guys in the room at the time were thinking and I'm not going to ask.
I waited for them to leave
I figure my ostomy (Mickey – named after Mickey Mouse) was just celebrating his third anniversary that day - April 29th
