Life with bowel cancer


That card that says "Need a loo Urgently" ...

I lost my purse a few weeks ago and with it my trusty card that states "This Holder Urgently Needs a Toilet" or words to that effect.

I don't fortunately have LARS, and I have only used the card once but to great effect -late one night when I had broken down I headed for a large Tescos, only to find the toilets locked due to renovation. I was directed to the nearest public loos which were too far for comfort so I waved my urgent card and got taken to the staff toilets - hooray!

It was like a talisman in my purse - I know I probably won't need it again, but I liked to have it. But for the life of me I can't remember who issued it - is it NHS or the stoma bag company perhaps, or one of the charities? Please enlighten me so I can apply for another.

Thank you @Terrish, reading your post has prompted me to order one of these cards myself. I’ve had to fly by the seat of my pants a couple of times 🙈 (so to speak) so I’m sure this trusty little card will come in handy. :x::x:
