Hello everyone, how often do you change your pouch and what was the longest time you went in between pouch changes?
I have had a stoma - colostomy - for 10 years and have gradually reached a good system. I use a two piece, changing the bag as necessary, generally morning and night. I change the base plate once a week. I could go longer but I prefer the weekly routine. Mine was rectal cancer so the very lowest part of the power was removed. The 'advantage' of this is that the product is fairly solid mostly. I do understand that people with an ileostomy or a generally liquid product will have security challenges. It took me a year or two to work out the best arrangement etc. I won't bore you with the details of what i actually do unless someone asks on this chatline. Cheers
