Flying

Although it is unlikely, flying can cause lower pressure and therefore cause more air in your stoma bag. To keep yourself as comfortable as possible:

  • Avoid fizzy drinks and foods that increase wind or make output runny such as cabbage, onions, lentils, eggs and spicy food
  • Don’t skip meals
  • It may help to eat a low fibre meal before or during your flight
  • Empty your stoma pouch just before boarding your flight
  • If you need to go to the toilet, try to go before the meal is served as there will be fewer queues than after
  • Make sure your filter cover is not on, to ensure that wind escapes and does not build up
  • International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations prevent dangerous items on board. If you are in doubt contact the airline or us to check
  • Remember no sharp instruments such as scissors can be taken in hand luggage
  • Don't forget to take a supply of spare stoma bags in your hand luggage in case your luggage becomes lost
