My 89-year-old mother loves to swim but she has found that the pouch fills with water when she gets into the pool. What can we do to fix this?
We recently had someone reach out to our Facebook community with a similar question, and several of our OstomyLife community members responded with their own advice.
Hopefully you and your mother will find their answers helpful ...

    How long should one keep a bag on.

  2. Posted February 26, 2015 at 6:57 pm PST

    WOCNs suggest you change your bag every 3-5 days. Some people can keep a seal for longer than 5 days. It depends on the person, pouching system, stoma, and abdominal surface area of each person. If your skin underneath the wafer starts to itch consistently before 3 days, change it anyway. Itching is a sign that there is moisture or a possible leak.
