Michael Davidson: I also kneeled before he porcelain throne to empty my bag lol. A fun tip also that I did is to get one of the plastic urine jugs from the hospital and bring it home with you. Fill the urine jug (urinal) with water then empty into the bag until you have a decent amount. Then sorta massage the bag so that you make a sort of a "poop soup" and pour it out into the toilet. Fill bag, Massage, Rinse, and Repeat. You're able to get all of the stool out in a quicker amount of time. Also cleaner bag means only change every 3-4 days.

ByGraceIGo: I think you are very brave and helpful to others to post this. Also I have a young friend who has one of these and I wondered just how they were used. He doesn't know that I know.

Bobby Andrews: What caused you to need this?

Brahim Jabenali: thank you so much

Ken Jackson: Id die before id walk around with a bag of crap hangin on my side.....just sayin Theres only so much im willing to put up with for this life and this is over the top.

lethepthe: Sadly, I noticed there have been no recent uploads nor replies from him. I fear he may have lost his battle with cancer. One of my friends recently was diagnosed with colon cancer and now faces having his colon removed. These are brave people who do this with a very strong will to live. I'm not sure I could be so brave.

garycalgary: (1) why is there an electrical plug near the toilet i have never seen that (2) how does someone so young need one of those?

fidokalman: Thank you. My buddy empties his on his knees too. Might I suggest putting the toilet seat up so nothing gets on it. My buddy has the velcro. Did not know about ADAPT number 78501 so we'll get that too. And thanks for the demo on how to get rid of the residue at the sink. Your vids really prepared us prior to his operation. Great service you provide buddy.

Bridgette Fuselier: Very informative...

LJG7654: Thanks for posting. I recently had an ileostomy and thought I was weird for emptying my bag that way. Good to know that others do it, too! I had problems with it getting everywhere and that really cuts down on splashing. I have found rinsing with water like that loosens my seal, though. Also, I really like wet ones to clean the end of the bag - flushable are best! Thanks for posting!

swoki53: thanks for sharing i am awaiting surgery after trying to avoid it for several years mostly because of having to have the stoma but at leadt it may be temp if can have pouch

BruceWaldemar: A very informational and well explained video. I appreciate you sharing. Thanks.

dominick corrieri: Thank you!

Outpatient: @alecchris02 I am glad that my videos have been helpful. If you have any specific questions please let me know and I would be happy to answer them or make a video on the topic.

Outpatient: Generally no, it does not smell. when I have worn my wafer/bag for 4 or more days it can start to smell. but that is only because I have had the Wafer/bag on for to long. But when I keep everything changed on a regular basis it does not smell at all.

Mike Wieczor: @TheQaz95 bowel obstruction can do it, as well as something called a volvulus (bowel loops over itself causing necrosis (tissue death). Perforations in the bowel (can be caused by surgery or mechanical means) can all do this as well as Chrons and other gastrointestinal disorders. Hope this helps
