Sparkling water

"This is the best website for people with an Ostomy, hands down. So much understanding. Everyone should join."

Does anyone drink sparkling water? If so, how does it do with your bag? Does it produce "balloning "?

Hi tmn,

  I assume you mean carbonated anything?  I drink it all day and night and it doesn't affect me one bit, but I'd assume the more bowel you have intact....the more of an affect it can have on you. 

regards,

bob

I have an ileostomy bag and if I drink seltzer later in the afternoon (after 4pm) it does produce more balloning during the night - however, I am in bed by 9pm.......so if you go to sleep later than you likely could have the carbonation later

I don't drink it but I do drink way to much coke! Occasionally my bag balloons but mostly no problems it's easy to deal with as long as it's not trapped wind inside you....just try it only way to see if it's ok for you

Hi tmn

I can't drink any fizzy drinks ..gives me terrible gas pain ..I've tried cola  and different sodas but they don't work for me ..I get ballooning  all the time tho and burp the bag quite often.

Stay safe

I try to make them go as flat as possible.  I've found that diet Dr. Pepper is the easiest to tolerate by taste.  Sugar speeds up my system.

You may want to put EZ-Vents on your pouch so you can vent when it's purely gas

I have not had and carbonated drinks in years. Once a doctor told me that drinking any carbonated beverage expanded your stomach leaving empty space and that sends a message to the brain to feed it. Not a good diet plan! Haha

I have tried a few times but it is like a million explosions on my tongue like an AlkaSelzer.  Just cannot do it. Lol

Any carbonated beverage causes ballooning which is easy to remedy by burping the bag.  However, I think not drinking it late at night is best as the ballooning continues and it wakes me.

I drink Sparkling water sometimes. It is just water with added carbonation and sometimes, flavorings. Club soda, on the one hand, has added salts to neutralize the acidity of the added carbonation.

Which ever Sparkling water it does not produce balloning at all. You can check this guide FAQs to clear some of your quotes related to it Like :-

I personally feel except some hard Sparkling water all others are fine for my boby.
