Choose the correct pouch
It is not unusual that the first pouch you choose or is recommended to you does not suit in the longer term.
- A change in body shape, gaining or losing weight can affect the skin around the stoma and how far the stoma protrudes.
- Any change can affect the performance of the stoma pouch and the security it offers you.
- Trying alternative pouches can help to achieve a secure reliable stoma routine.
