Hi Guys,I have flown with my stoma before but I haven't done a long flight-we're going from UK to Las Vegas via Philadelphia.I irrigate and I know that should makes things simpler.But I need some advice. 1 Do I carry my irrigation set in my hand luggage? 2 I will carry some spare bags in my hand luggage and some in my suitcase just in case-what else will I need. 3 Is there anything I need to be aware of going through security?I mean that long hose on my set looks a bit weird!! 4 I have got a travel certificate with me which explains what my condition is,should all my medication be labelled? 5 I suppose Im nervous as I've had 2 previous travel disasters-once my bag set off the alarm-there was a tiny bit of metal in the filter.The second time I just got a huge rush of the runs mid flight. 6 I am worried about the huge gaps in between flights as I know it'll take me over the 24 hour irrigation time.Can you ever irrigate one extra time if you have to? any other advice gladly received-many thanks, Lola.
