October 7th, 2017 – It’s another World Ostomy Day, and this year I’d like to discuss the truth about having an ostomy and ways to reach acceptance.
A question I get asked often is, “How many times should I be emptying my ostomy bag?”.
A type of product I usually recommend to ileostomates and colostomates who have loose or liquid output are gelling sachets. Eakin has their own called Perform, and that’s what I’ll be covering in this review!
Stealth Belt or ComfortBelt? I get asked which belt is better about 22346145 times a day (more or less), so it’s time to finally put these heavyweights in the ring and see who comes out on top!
I love wearing my ostomy bag sideways, but some people may find it difficult to adjust to, especially when it comes to emptying their appliance.
“Pancaking” has been a problem for many ostomates and any solution would be welcome.
On March 15th, 2017 I spoke to the members of Ostomy Toronto as a guest speaker.
Barrier rings can help to prevent ostomy leaks, but most barrier rings get gooey and melt. Brava Protective Rings are Coloplast’s solution to this problem. But do they work?
