    There's no reason to change bags, if my cleaning was damaging the bacteriostatic coating the worst case is that it voids the bacteriostatic advantage...

    How effective is the Irypump cone from keeping the water from seeping out during instillation? The Irypump is way more affordable than the Peristeen.

  1. Hi Lin.. I just want to wish you joy and fair treatment so that life can be better to live even with our injuries and pain. I wish to find friends here where I live to hang out with and i believe it would be helpful to the moral being. Its hard with health care being to harsh upon us. Just be strong and keep yourself busy. Hey you take care, Sammy..

    Don't let the craziness of the HC Parking thread get you down. We are in there scuffling with each other like it is a giant scrum, and really at the end of the day, we all get to park there, and it is the ABs we should be concerned about. Also, thanks for the supportive comment re gay pride. It's not always easy being open about sexuality. You never know what reception you will receive. Just the other day there was a nasty homophobic post in the Politics Forum. One supportive comment like yours means a lot and paves the way for others to be accepting as well. XX Nikki

  8. Awesome! I love running into other hoosiers online. I'm originally from northwest Indiana, now living in Indianapolis for the past few years. I've literally worked my way down I65 continuously moving south lol. Its never been planned, just sort of happened that way due to changing jobs and housing situations.
