Hi Patty, I sometimes feel that as well. Usually on the 4-6 day of a pouch use. I think the filter works for a short time but by the time there has been poo on it, it fails to work after a few days. I have found that safe and simple Ostomy deodorant works best to cure both when emptying the pouch or in between times odor!
Have you tried it? I have not tried M9 but hear it is similar but more expensive.
I once had a friend over and kept smelling horrible odors and had to laugh but had it not been a really close friend, it would not have turned out the same. We laughed about it every time it happened for the few hours she was here! Come to think about it, she has not come back since! Haha Come to find out, it was a pin-sized hole in the Convetec pouch. Guess I should tell her that is not the norm and she can come back! Lol
Every year, on the first weekend in October, is a time for connection, inspiration, and reflection for the ostomy community. Whether virtually or in person, we hope you join in for Ostomy Awareness Day on October 7, 2023.
