Product Description

You've just gotten an ileostomy. Now what?

Living with an ileostomy seems daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. In My Other Bag’s a Prada: Quick and Dirty Tips for Surviving an Ileostomy, author and ileostomy veteran AW Cross gives you a first-hand, non-medical perspective of what to expect from your ileostomy and how to cope successfully day-to-day.

Through a straightforward blend of practicality and humor, you’ll learn how to:

•Survive the physical consequences and emotional impact of having an ostomy
•Choose your appliance, your accessories, and change your bag
•Cope with odor, leaks, obstructions, and skin damage
•Pack a survival kit and navigate the outside world
•Dress, eat, and have sex
•Deal with healthcare professionals and enjoy your stays in the hospital
•Manage the ignorant public and use social media to your advantage

Whether you’ve just gotten your ileostomy, or you’ve had it for years, if you’re determined to own it like a boss, this book is for you.

If you’d rather suffer blow-outs and bagtastrophies, have no sense of humor about your stoma, and hate puppies and sunshine, DON’T BUY THIS BOOK!

My Other Bag's a Prada is Book 2 in the Quick and Dirty Tips for Surviving series


"Ms. Cross has a knack for writing about topics that most of us don't even want to think about. Kudos to her for tackling these subjects in a humorous, thoughtful and insightful way." - Goodreads Reviewer

About the Author

AW Cross is a former scientist and agriculturalist-turned-author and blogger. She was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2009, and since then has run the gamut of IBD from ileostomy to j-pouch before being diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in 2016. Intended to be humorous-but-pragmatic guides, her "Quick and Dirty Tips for Surviving" series was written as a response to her personal experience with her condition and what she felt was a lack of positive and practical day-to-day advice for patients. You can visit her IBD blog at, or follow her on Twitter @ScreamingMeemi
