I'm currently on a vacation in Costa Rica and I was pretty worried about the trip since I'm only 3 months post surgery. But I have to say, I feel like my stoma is more well behaved than at home.
Could be the 20k steps, tons of water, great food non stop, and that feeling of just letting go? Not sure.
But things have been great. I'm seeing next to no air in my bag at night, I'm only emptying 2-3 times per day and things just seems to be working much better overall.
Pretty surprised to be honest given the level of alcohol I've consumed.
I am being very careful with what I eat though. Mostly protein and bananas. I'm a bit more risky at home but I don't want to push my luck.
This is the most free I've ever felt on vacation. Not needing a bathroom every 30 mins has its perks.
this is also my first time in extreme heat and I've had no issues with leaks or adhesive problems ;I think I'll get through this 7 day trip with only one flange change which is awesome since I brought 5.
Also the airport was a breeze.... Just swabbed me for bomb residue and didn't ask to see it nothin.
Anywho. Things are good. :)
