In the stoma world it is often difficult to decide what is best until you actually try something for yourself.
As I have said many times, I make my own baseplates - onto which I attach manufacturer's devices. In the past 6months I've been experimenting with a slightly different approach, which might be of interest to you if you want to irrigate and use a bag afterwards. (with the same baseplate).
The three items are from Coloplast:
1) Assura irrigation press plate 60mm 12820
2) Assura irrigation sleeves 2 piece 60mm 12836
3) Sensura click ostomy bag 2-piece with dual filter. 60mm 14896
I have made an addition to the baseplate to fit my stoma but I can say that these devices work quite well as a three-piece interchangeable set.
I would also say that I prefer these irrigation sleeves to the Hollister ones because there is more space at the top for managing the irrigation process.
Coloplast are good at sending out samples, so there would be no harm or expense in trying out this combination. However, I still think that if irrigation works for you, then a bag should be unnecessary. (once you gain confidence).
