    You might want to go to www.uoaa.org. This is the Ostomy Association's website and they have discussion boards that tons of people could help you with experience with irrigating and stuff like that. I have an ileostomy and can't go without a pouch, so can't help you there.

    Which is why I suggested looking into the procedure I posted.
    No bag that I'm aware of.

    No I don't have it, but know others who have.
    It's sometimes done with the mitrofanoff (bladder surgery I do have) and then it's called MACE, but can be done individually. Even Wikipedia has some info on it. Seriously just search the web.

    ETA I guess it's not really popular and is usually done on children with spina bifida. Regardless this is the only thing that I've heard of like you described.
