Stoma since 2000 due to Cancer
I have to empty the bag fairly frequently; and will change the bag every 48 hours. Bag changing takes about 15 to 30 minutes and, if there has been a leak, requires me to undress to remove wet clothing, as well as to fit a new bag. The larger area inside accessible toilets is therefore very necessary as is a water supply to enable me to clean up. My wife, who also has a non-visible disability, has had adverse comments about ‘jumping the queue’. She also has had problems when requesting use of accessible changing rooms in shops.
