Having been impressed with past ostomy appliances by B. Braun, I was excited to see what their 1-piece system offered!
A question I get asked often is, “How many times should I be emptying my ostomy bag?”.
In this blog post I’ll be answering a question that many new ostomates have: when should I change my appliance?
Moldable ostomy wafers aren’t as popular as they probably should be, but ConvaTec has been making them for many years now. In this review, I’ll be looking at their SUR-FIT Natura moldable wafers.
Here’s a cool hack that allows you mix two brands of Ostomy appliances to customize your experience.
It seems that Coloplast has been busy making changes to products based on feedback from their users. This is a great thing to see, and I’m happy to be giving you this product overview on the newly designed SenSura Mio pouches for ileostomates.
New ostomy products get me excited, and nothing excites me more than a new ostomy appliance. I’ve been fortunate enough to be the first North American patient to use the new Flexima 3S by B. Braun, and I’m so happy to be finally able to present this review.

Changing an ostomy appliance doesn’t have to be complicated, but there are a few things you’ll want to do in order to do it right.
