I am using the Hollister two peice drainable pouch. They come with a sheet of "filter covers" that you are supposed to apply when swimming or bathing. This supposably protects the filter and you remove it after you are done soaking. I have yet to experience a successful removal of sticker and still be able to wear the bag without it leaking. The filter in the top always starts leaking and it drives me crazy. My solution has been to just remove the bag when bathing but then I'm constantly wiping up the stoma. Gone are the days of soaking in the tub, stress-free, relaxing and enjoying.
What about the little stoma caps....are those helpful for bathing?
