I am making frequent pouch changes
Changing your stoma pouch too often will increase the risk of causing damage to your skin around the stoma.
How much is too much?
- Closed pouch – more than 3 times a day.
- Drainable pouch – more than once a day.
- Urostomy pouch – more than alternate days.
If you are changing your pouch more frequently than this, you may need to consider changing to a different pouch. We would recommend you contact your stoma nurse as you may need to switch to a 2-piece system.
The products below could help to extend your pouch weartime and reduce the number of changes you make.
Small eakin Cohesive® Seals
The Extra Protector Small eakin Cohesive® Seals provide maximum skin protection and maximum absorption capacity. They prevent leaks even for those with high fluid content and will help to increase pouch wear time.
