I am seeing a urologist on Tuesday prior to surgery and may be offered a choice.
I think the choice will be between a single stoma handling solids and liquid outputs or two separate stomas.
I already have managed a loop ileostomy for 8 months and my instinctive reaction would be to favour two separate bags as my worst fear is accidents and I suspect handling both outputs - even in a single bigger bag - would increase the likelihood of leaks and accidents.
I guess the disadvantages of two bags are cosmetic and more frequent visits to the loo for emptying.
Does anyone have any real-life experience of managing two bags or a single bag handling both outputs like this ?
Thanks - Andy
