I thought I'd be "pc" with my title...
Last Christmas, I had emergency, life-saving surgery. The result was a temporary ileostomy, one of the things I had once viewed as my own personal version of hell on earth. It actually turned out fine, if uncomfortable, but I'll spare you most of the details (if you want to find out, hit up wikipedia, not a google image search. Trust me.).
My ileostomy is located in a different place most because of the extremely bad situation I was in, so I have some issues that most people don't have. My problem is mainly this: The bottom of the snap-and-roll ostomy bags have sharp little corners that poke my legs when I walk. Ouch!
Of course, we all know that the solution to all problems is knitting, so here's what I came up with:
This bag cover is way more fashionable and comfortable than the bag all alone. I also included an unused bag in the shot so you can see what I'm talking about.
Here it is modeled by my ever-patient Jeero:
I figured this was a little more polite than a picture of me wearing it, even though you wouldn't see anything but knitted item and a little tummy.
I don't know how useful this is for all of you, but I was pretty excited about it, even though I quickly realized that it is only helpful while I'm in pj's. I'm already planning its next incarnation.
