This is my first post on this site. One of the things I was curious about, and am hoping people have real experience and tips for, is how to manage with an ileostomy and traveling, specificaly in New York City? I fear this ileostomy will be permanent for me, and am struggling with a lot of the things this means for me as a young adult woman. As I am figuring things out and trying to stay positive, one of the things I am at a loss for especially is the practical side of it: if you have been to NYC, and know about it, then you know how unbelievably hard it is to find a restroom. Its rediculous! I remember the last time I was there before I had this surgery and it was hard enough just finding one to go for normal reasons. Now that I have an ileostomy, it is even harder because of the frequency I will need to go (there's only so much additional fiber, imodium and changes in diet can do to reduce the input amount, after all.) I'd like to hear from others how they get around this very irritating issue, or if they don't, how they stay sane and manage to still have fun and go out. Tell me your thoughts!
