After your surgery, your healthcare team will talk with you in general terms about how most ostomy pouching systems work. You’ll have a few different options and your stoma care nurse can help you make the right choices for you. Below is some basic information that will increase your knowledge of urostomy pouching systems.
What makes a urostomy pouching system different
You may know that there are different types of ostomy surgeries, some of which divert fecal matter through the stoma. With a urostomy, your stoma output is limited to urine. For this reason, all urostomy pouching systems are drainable to help manage the frequent disposal of urine.

Other urostomy pouching system considerations
Drainage while you sleep is another important factor in making a pouching system choice. Night time drainage options might include the use of an adapter that attaches to the end of your pouch. This diverts urine to a dedicated drainage collector just for nighttime use.
Make sure to talk to your stoma care nurse about following good hygiene when draining or changing your pouching system to avoid infections. You should also discuss a skin care routine to help keep the skin around your stoma healthy.
