Halacha - Sick person wearing tefillin
Submitted by Abba Silver  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Dear Rabbi, Can a man with a colostomy bag put on tefillin? Thank you.
Answer: It would depend on the frequency of activity. If one can change the bag and assume a period of time without expelling feces, he should put of tefillin then and recite as much of davening as possible, but at least Shema. If there is no way of knowing when feces will be expelled, he may not wear tefillin.
