When you've had an ostomy procedure, you will need supplies for your stoma and surrounding area. At SGVMedical.com, we carry hundreds of ostomy appliances, each working to make your life a little easier and more comfortable. You can choose from bags, pouches, accessories, and more in our online catalog.
For most people, the right appliance is dependent on the fit on your stoma and the adhesion to your skin. Some people have sensitive skin, others don't. The trick is to find out what works for you and to use that product effectively. There are several things to consider. First, what kind of surgery did you have? Ileostomy patients need to wear bags on a full-time basis to empty their intestines. Colostomy patients can often choose when they would like to wear the bag, depending on whether or not they irrigate.
Whatever your routine, we have a huge selection of appliances of all brands and kinds. We carry disposable one-piece bag systems as well as reusable and interchangeable two-piece systems for active use. Both types are drainable, which means that you can undo the tie, clip, or filter for drainage purposes.
There are always options. Typically, these bags are attached with an adhesive wafer that sticks to the skin. For extremely sensitive skin, though, there are non-adhesive systems that help people who have skin allergies or who are prone to rashes.
