Changing A Two Piece Stoma Bag

Two piece stoma bags have a separate adhesive (flange) with a raised collar over which the pouch is fitted. The flange can be kept on for 2 -3 days and the new pouches can be attached when necessary.    

Emptying Pouch
  • Wash hands
  • If using a drainable or urostomy bag, empty the contents of your stoma bag into the toilet
Spraying Appeel
Applying LBF Spray
  • Gently peel back the flange, applying additional remover if required
  • Remove excess soiling on the stoma and surrounding skin with a dry non-woven swab
Measuring Stoma
  • Wash stoma and surrounding area with water and dry thoroughly
  • If necessary, check the size of your stoma, using a measuring card
Cutting Pouch
  • If your pouch needs adjusting, cut a hole to the required size using a pair of pouch cutting scissors*
Applying LBF Spray
  • Apply a barrier wipe to skin around stoma. Leave for a few seconds until dry. This will not affect pouch adhesion
Removing Stoma Bag Cover
  • Remove the protective cover from the adhesive flange
Attaching 2Piece Stoma Bag Flanges
  • Fit flange and smooth over from the stoma to the edge ensuring there are no creases in the adhesive
Attaching 2Piece Stoma Bag
  • Hold in place with your hand for 30 to 50 seconds as the warmth increases the adhesion to your skin
  • Attach stoma bag to the flange from the bottom ensuring that the bag and flange are aligned
