Learning how to sleep again may sound odd. After all, we’ve been sleeping since the day we were born. But when you have a stoma, your old sleep positions may need a little adjustment. Here are some tips:
As these people living with an ostomy will tell you, sleeping gets easier with time.
If you have a urostomy, ask a ConvaTec product specialist about a night drainage system. It collects urine throughout the night so you don’t have to drain your pouch.
If you have a high-output ileostomy, ask a ConvaTec product specialist about high-output pouches. They may allow you to sleep through the night without interruption.
