New convert from 2 failed J--pouches here. I sure like the filters in the bag but after only a day or so, the seem to plug then back to the old way of venting.

I put the Osteo EZ-vents on my sons. At least it makes the venting easier.

Amen to the EZ vents. I wear one piece. Can't get along without them, and they have never failed me.

Made decision in 6/10 to have surgery which was on 12/17/10 (permanent ileostomy - unable to have the j-pouch) and no longer in pain.
