Emptying an ostomy–Laura’s way

May 28, 2012

Emptying an ostomy might seem like old hat to some of you, but to others, you might find this video useful. Laura shows several ways she empties her appliance. Everybody is a little bit different, so if you find something that works for you, stick with it!

Keep fighting,


  1. Sitting sideways while emptying: so simple, so easy, so obvious–I wish I’d thought of it when I had my ostomy!

    What a great vid–many thanks for posting it here!

  2. This is a very helpful video. Thank you all.

    Recently, I made a video of a complete appliance change, showing the products used and a few tricks I learned over 2 years. There’s no talking, but the technique is clear. I’m happy to answer any questions about the video, which anyone can ask on the YouTube page. Here’s the link. Thanks for watching! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsoCZrZ0EaU

    PS It took me 2 years, but I finally got the courage to video my appliance change, all thanks to Dennis and Nadia showing me the way.
