urostomy bags

Post by lieslwo »

I had my bladder removed in November 2021. My urostomy bags leak once a week or so. I have tried the rings and the Barrier strips but I still have issues.
Any tips?
Thanks in advance!

How often do you replace your flange and bag? It's recommended to do it every 3-4 days. I've been able to go as far as 5 days but that was in the winter and I wasn't moving around much. Now that it's warmer, I'm finding that every 3 days is my limit. Also, what type of system are you using? Is it flat or convex (ring around opening)? If you are using one type, you may want to try the other type to see if it works better for you. I have a very distinct "fold" in my belly right where my urostomy is and the convex is working. I tried the flat but that made leaks even worse. Hope this helps.
