Hey Liam, Sounds like a great idea. I use baby oil and have had good success as well. I will try the olive oil trick. Penguins7
when was the last time you had a leak using the baby oil??? the baby oil could be better as it has a deodraant inside
No leaks with the baby oil. Plus it comes in travel size containers at walmart that are very handy.
hi i have heard many people doing this so they dont also have the pancaking experience great and well thought of as anyone who needs to think a lil different a lot of our country people in my country use this method as they do live pretty far away a lovely gentleman told me about trying to live at a camp side told me about olive oil thanks matey hope a few people get to read this as knowlege is the key as they say ? who are they them you know the people LOL ok out n about MOOZA
So do you just put the oil in the one time when changing the bag?....or at every empty.
Hello Vikinga, I put a couple drops of baby oil in the bag each time i empty. I keep a large baby oil in the bathroom and carry the travel size ones when i am out. Penguins7
Will this method work for folks like me that have a urostomy urine only bag? Thanks

Olive oil, wasn't she married to Popeye? I guess she could do it if no one else could.
Oh, by the way, olive oil is just GREAT on popcorn for any of you ostomates who actuall EAT that stuff! I have a feeling, though, that it won't help the kernels through your gut if you are an ileostomate, though, only a "real" ostomate like me.
Hmm. I have some of that Adapt lubricating and deoderizing liquid that is supposed to do just that, but I have suspected shorter wear time because of it. Maybe I just used too much.
I like the simplicity of the oil. Guess it could be any kind really.
what is pancaking? What does the olive oil do? it leaks due to so many reasons, the most important, I think, is because it is mostly liquid. Does the oil harden the output?
okay ill do a step by step..
1... Cut hole on wafer leaving the outcase on.. so the oil dont get on the sticky wafer..
2.. hold the bottle of olive oil in your hand and pour into the hole you have just cut..
3.. once the olive oil has slid down to the bottom of the bag.. squeeze the bag so the olive oil gets all around the bag...
4.. take the wafer case off and stick on yourself as normal for 30 seconds... count to 30 people hearing you will think your nuts but who cares...
4 hold the outter ring of the stoma for another 30 seconds...
5 now any creases in the wafer iron them out...
6.. leave the oil in the bag and when u empty the shit the excess oil will come out leaving your bag all oiled up inside so when the shit comes out your stoma it slides straight down like a water slide...
NOW GO RING UP YOUR SUPPILER AND ASK THEM FOR A STOMA GUARD BELT THESE WORK MIRACLES!
HAHAH LOVE THE SHIT STEPS U PUT DOWN LMAO . I HAVE AN ILEOSTOMY SO NO HARD CRAP IN MINE IELO GEL TO MAKE THE WATYERY STOOL EASYER TO EMPTY OUT STEP 1 BREATHE LOL CHEERS MOOZA LOVED THE STEPS
WATERY STOOL BUY SOME ILEO GEL IT WILL THICKEN UP THE WATERY OUTPUT I WOULD BE LOST WITHOUT IT , NIOT SURTE WHAT ITS CALLED IN OTHER COUNTRYS ITS CHRYSTILIZED GEL IT WILL HELP PROMISE YA
Great tip! I've had an ileostomy for 44 years and it is well managed most of the time. But there are those times that I know ahead of time that the roughage is going to pancake (new term for me). This sounds like it will really help. Thank you!
