Because of colorectal cancer surgery six years ago, this 74-year-old retiree will be starting my CF journey from SJPdP in September with a permanent sigmoid colostomy. I've come to terms with the extra space and weight requirements that my ostomy equipment will require over the course of six weeks. I also have great boots, because they say the hardest part of a colostomy is finding shoes to go with your bag....joke. But my question has to do with typical albergue w.c. privacy. I really don't relish the idea of subjecting my fellow pilgrims to the daily routine of ostomy maintenance/cleaning/upkeep. Do albergue bathrooms typically provide enough privacy to address my self-consciousness and protect my fellow travelers? Or should I just plan on the higher cost of private lodgings each night, and forego the end-of-the-day fellowship of the albergues?
