Is ostomy leakage normal?

No, ostomy leakage doesn’t have to be the new norm for you. While pouch leaks are rather common, this issue is usually pretty easy to fix.

The main way to do this is by addressing the possible cause of your pouch leaks. This could be due to reasons such as:

  • Poor-fitting pouching appliance
  • Improper seal due to uneven skin surface
  • Letting the pouch get too full
  • Incorrect sizes
