|All the basics|
|Fits into a small lunch bag for undercover ease.|
As active, fun loving ostomates, we spend a fare amount of time adventuring. So if you are out enjoying your life and you need to refresh your gear, or you have a blow out; being prepared is a very good thing. Any small bag can be your undercover ostomy travel kit. I use a normal looking lunch bag. Unless someone was searching for a snack, no one would ever guess what its real job is.
Here is a list of some of the basics you will need to make your own travel kit:
Water based baby wipes
Roll of toilet paper – or several paper towels folded to fit
Ostomy gauge – to cut the hole the right size
Paste – or barrier ring if you use it
Large zip bag – to put all the debris in as you go for a fast clean up
Ostomy garbage bag – supplied by most companies – or just grab another zip bag
Some extras you may want to add:
Small room deodorizer spray
It is easy to take a little time to be prepared so you can go out and have fun.
Other handy things to have in the car are fresh pants and underpants. Also for best results remember to keep your kit in the coolest place in the car. The trunk or glove box will melt, warp or make your wafer brittle and unusable.
