i have had an ostomy on and off for 7 years now.  I have to wear the belt but I get the one from coloplast because the holister one is to uncomfortable.  I have always had trouble with air at night...and for some reason if i have an iv in the hospital myy bag fills up faster then i can get to it so i dont sleep there either.  Strange this is that it doesn't do it to me during the day if i take a nap.  strange.

I too have trouble with gas. Am on eliquis which is a blood thinner. Side effect is gas. Am trying to find bag that gets rid of the gas.

Hi honestabe,

I have never heard of a pouch that has a gas relief system that is reliable, but you could attach these vents that make it easier to manually release the gas.

I had some delivered yesterday by my supplier and will try it out in morning. They did say, if you have a lot of gas it won't work. Will let everyone know, as I'm sure not the only one with this problem.

This little device is not going to solve anything, but it will make it easier to let out the gas from the bag~

Was a waste of money. You were right. It's a joke for gas. Bad thing about it is I have 18 bags left.
