How long have you had your ostomy? It's common for that to happen in the beginning. Have you made any changes to your diet in the last month? Carbonated beverages and gas producing foods will cause the bag to puff up. Gas-X and Beano are over-the-counter pills that can help reduce gas.

Also, chewing gum and drinking thru a straw will cause gas too. If you are skipping meals, sometimes that will cause more gas when you do eat. Several small meals is better.
