How to control leakage when traveling.

Posted by skits, on Thu Nov 17, 2016 1:04 am

When I travel anywhere grocery shoping, sight seeing in local area or long distance traveling. I take 2 mini pads and fold them sticky sides together and absorbing sides outside. Tuck them in my clean pouch and let the pads absorb the exiting liquid from my stoma. i feel safe and can go a lot longer time before empting pouch and then adding 2 fresh mini pads

A great idea that works! I do the same sort of thing on the outside to absorb any leakagesfrom my stoma plug. But since I've been doing that, the pressure from the pad has stopped the leaks anyway.

I feel more secure wearing an ostomy belt. It helps hold my two piece system together and in place.
