Coloplast's Sensura Mio: High Volume Solution!

Feb 13, 2020 2:38 pm

A few days ago, I received some samples tailored for my situation from Coloplast. Due to my volume, I usually have to get up and empty at least 4 times a night. Last night, I emptied twice.

What I received were samples from their Sensura Mio line. It included a barrier, a ring, and 2 pouches. One pouch is normal-sized, and the other pouch reaches down to mid-thigh. Basically, I clicked and rinsed out the smaller pouch and clicked in the bigger pouch before I went to bed.

I thought it would be uncomfortable or ungainly to have such a large pouch in bed. It's big enough to hold over a liter of output.

I'm switching over from Hollister to Coloplast. I just received my shipment of Hollister gear, and I'm going to exchange it for the Coloplast. When I gave my feedback to Coloplast, they volunteered to send me more gear to tide me over until my order is replaced.

Coloplast must really be making a play for market dominance.

I'm having trouble uploading images, so that will have to wait for later.

I love Coloplast. Well, I love almost all about the Coloplast system except the click system for the two-piece appliance, and it's a game changer for me. Can't stand it! Love everything else about them though. One day I hope to come back to them when they change that. Not until. Glad they have something for you guys to use. We all need our sleep!

It's great that you have had help from Coloplast. Hope it works out for you.

Hey Ticpol. I've been using Coloplast almost the entire time of my ostomy. When I was in a nursing home, they only had Convatec, but I like Coloplast's flexibility for me anyway. Glad to hear they're helping you out as well.

Yo Tickster,

Thanks for the line on the jumbo might come in useful someday. For me, I'm so used to only sleeping an hour or three that I kinda like it. I sure get a lot more done than when I slept 7-8 hours a day. I was toying with the idea of ostomy bag underwear for us high output types. Got to making a few tries at prototypes, but sitting down fast continues to present a challenge. Maybe if I honeycomb or compartmentalize the Titanic. Anyway, thanks for the heads-up.

I didn't think I'd like the click system but I haven't found it any harder to use than Hollister's Tupperware-style connection. Today I'm trying Coloplast's adhesive-style barrier and pouch. Figured I'd try it on a day I know I'd be home. I'm doing house cleaning so with all the bending and such, if it's going to fail then today's the day I'd find out.

For those folks in the Baltimore region, Johns Hopkins is looking for volunteers for a study of ostomy supplies. I don't know much about it and the contact hasn't called me back so that's all I really know now.

Hi Dave,

Keep me in the loop on the Hopkins thing. I don't get up there much these days, with the city a homicidal mess and really nothing new to tell the Docs. I just don't have any reason to go. But I'm curious what they're up to.
