When you are adjusting to your new stoma it is often quite overwhelming when you do your first few bag changes.
I have found over time that the best way to making bag changes easier and less overwhelming is to be organised.
For the first few months I was using a little side coffee table that I had in my bathroom and would have my supplies stacked underneath it.
I was pretty lucky to find a cupboard on a local selling site for only $15!! A complete bargain right! This was the most perfect find as it fits perfectly in the space between where I sit to do my bag changes and the shower. I have it set up so that when I am seated I can easily lean into the cupboard and grab the supplies I needed.
I also still use the little side table and have it beside where I do my bag changes so that I can have easy access to my supplies!
