overnight ileostomy drainage bag

  1. 0
    Hi- my brother in law empties his ileostomy about q 2-3 hrs even during the night. If he sleeps through, the bag gets too full and leaks. Both he and my sister are getting sleep deprived. Are there any CD systems- like a 'large opening' urinary drainage system for ileostomies that they could attach prior to going to sleep for the night? Thx

    If his stool is pretty liquid, he could use a urostomy pouch hooked up to a Foley bag at night--I set that up a lot for my inpatients. What is the consistency of his stool?
