I’ve been trying a new Hollister ostomy system out, and I immediately noticed something that I found rather annoying: the pouch outlet just dangles from the bottom. It’s not obvious if you have an empty pouch, but as you start moving and your pouch fills up, poof – it dangles around like a Christmas ornament!
Curious, I took to twitter to see what other Hollister users thought, and the response I received was a bit surprising. One ostomate said that you simply get use to it and another uses a binder clip to keep it in place. Call me spoiled, but companies like Coloplast and Salts have already solved this issue by adding a strip of velcro to the pouch to keep the outlet from flapping around. So I thought, “why not do the same with the Hollister pouch? ” And so I did.
