My significant other is having trouble with the Hollister 18423 urostomy pouch coming apart at the connection to the tube of a Hollister 5174 urinary leg bag. She prefers wearing the leg bag all the time to reduce trips to bathroom. The connectors can separate at night while turning in bed or during the day just doing normal everyday activities. We've tried shortening, lengthening and repositioning the tube. Also tried to use various tapes to secure the connection but it continues to come apart every couple days. The bags and leg bag tube are replaced regularly. She uses the provided straps which should hold everything in place.
Does anyone have a suggestion to help? Is there another company that makes a similar type of system that might stay together better?
Thanks for any help!
