Colostomy irrigation

If your colostomy is emptying the same time everyday, why irrigate? Steve

Hello honestabe. A very good question you ask and it seems to be one that nicely illustrates the vast differences between people and their experiences when it comes to stomas. I have not read any previous posts which indicate that individuals  can get away with only emptying once a day unless they irrigate so I presume that there are many others, like myself, who found that continuously having to empty a bag was time consuming, messy and inconvenient (excuse the pun). Irrigation is a choice I am very grateful to have had, which allows me to achieve what you have described as emptying at the same time every day. If I could achieve that without irrigation, then my life would be correspondingly much easier.

Best wishes

Bill
