That's rough, Dwyer.  I only have the urostomy - ileal conduit.  I'm sure there are other "double baggers" out there, but you are likely in a fairly unique club.  Hope somebody with the experience you're looking for will reply.
I guess I'm being presumptuous about two bags.  Maybe you're going to be able to have the neobladder surgery?

Good luck to you.
