I am having an ileostomy done on Tuesday. I have several appointments scheduled the first 2 weeks after surgery. They are close to my house but I have heard you should always have a back up in your purse or in the car. What supplies should I take with me in my purse? I am just thinking my purse is a cross body purse can I shove everything in it. i know that sounds crazy but I am only 29 years old having surgery with 4 children all under the age of 11. Thanks for any input.
