I own an obstinate colostomy whose stoma lists ,( faces), the right. It is 2 1/2 yrs old and my grandchildren refer to it as “Stu the Stoma”.
I plan to fly to Boston in Nov to help my daughter w/her new baby. I’m really concerned about staying w/her due to the bathroom situation. I spend inordinate amounts of time in there. Often, the stoma spews while I shower,( which my daughter will find disgusting… because it is).
I am considering staying in a hotel, but am concerned about the financial cost of doing so.
My question? Has anyone else found themselves in this situation? How have you dealt w/it?
