Has anyone tried the disposable liners? If so, did you like them?

I have a colostomy - 3 months in. When I went back to work, I switched from drainable to disposable bags. I will never go back. Hollister makes a closed, quiet wear bag - it's the only one I'll use. I don't know if it's an option for you, but hopefully it is! I found it too time-consuming to empty and clean the drainable bags.

It only takes me 5 minutes to empty/clean the bag. I use Hollister Lock & Roll Velcro. I only clean the locking plastic flange. I used to have a hard time opening the flange. Now I crease the two plastic seals so it's easy to separate them. I'll look up the single-use bags.

I didn't mind the drainable bags when I was recovering at home, but once I returned to work, my bathroom time was limited, and it's a shared bathroom—too hard. Good tip on separating the seal!

Yeah, I'm back at work too. Emptying the bag makes quite a bit of noise. A quick bag change is the best feature of the 2-piece system.
