While I've got a J pouch as of four weeks ago, I used to just shower with the bag on and uncovered. I used the Coloplast Sensura Mio bags and I would just cover the filter with one of the stickers that come with the bags. As said by someone else, I just dried the bag with a towel, even though those types of bags had a cloth-like surface.
I shower with my bag off. Just my flange. I still get the same amount of wear time that I did when I was showering with my bag. Obviously, my pouch is the first thing I put on when I get out, but I love that nothing is wet when I'm getting ready in the morning. :)
Hi there. Why do you have to keep it dry? These appliances are made to survive showering, swimming, and whatever! Dry all around it and the pouch itself with your towel or a hair dryer after showering. Better still, if you can take it off when showering, the water is amazing for your skin. Cheers, Ngaire.
I change my skin barrier and pouch twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays. I shower with it off and have never had any issues. There have been a few times that there were some leaks when I was first learning about everything but for the most part it has been okay.
Hi Firefly....I shower everyday with mine on, once per week off for a great shower, good clean, and some air....the only thing I do is cover the filter with a sticker or tape....get out, dry off, if not dry enough, blast with a hair dryer and you're done...
