My friends are planning for a trek to Mount Everest Base camp and I would like to join them. Am a colostomy patient for the past 5 years. Am managing the bag quite well, learnt quite a lot of things during these past 5 years. Now the challenge is to learn how to manage cleaning / emptying the bag, where there are no toilets. What kind of clothes should I buy and wear for this trip?
Has anyone with colostomy done long treks with basic amenities? If yes, could you pl share your experience in managing the bag - how did you empty it / dispose the contents? What precautions should be taken while traveling in extreme cold conditions (for osteomyelitis patients)
