Stomaplex or Ostomybridge

Posted: Fri Dec 28, 2012 11:21 pm
Has anyone tried the Stomaplex or Ostomybridge?  If so some feedback would be greatly appreciated.  I purchased the stealthbelt and found wearing the pouch horizontal caused the stool to sit up top.  Thanks.

Hi Ron,  Thanks for your reply.  These products are designed to keep clothing (pants) from pushing against the stoma and restricting flow.  My stoma is located right on my belt line and i have trouble with pants.  I am going to try suspenders but am too young to wear them with everything.

Convatec in Canada has a Sports Guard that works great, and the price is right — it's free.

Convatec in the States is a different entity, and I don't know if they have this guard, but no harm in calling them to check.

Thanks for your response and you are correct the it is not avaialble in the USA.  Do you by chance have a phone number in Canada for Convatec as my parents live in Canada.  Thanks again.

Convatec Canada: 1-800-465-6302

Note: If you are able to get the shield, don't order the flimsy Convatec belt as the elastic disintegrates quickly; instead buy a Coloplast belt 0421 (it fits the Convatec Shield) — the Coloplast belt lasts "forever" and only costs about $10.

OK, this is just my opinion but it has saved me a lot of aggravation. I have used suspenders and they worked allright but I wanted something different and finally found it. There is a belt that will stretch to any size and is very comfortable, it does a great job of holding your pants up and does not interfere with your pouch, and mine is right on my beltline! This stretch belt is a weave type and has no holes for the buckle, it will pass right through the belt and give you just the right amount of tension to do the job, I'll try to find a picture which will be more explanatory than my babbeling, Ed

Thanks Ed.  This looks like a big edition to my solution.  Happy New Year.

And a Happy New Year to you Penguins7.
an addendum to the above post re the belt. The damn thing cost $35.00 and for that price I would expect a pair of pants throw in the deal, but really I'm satisfied Ed

Hi Penguins7,

I have purchased a Stoma Guard belt from and have been wearing it for about 2 months now. I too had problems with my belt digging into my stoma.

This product is fantastic, comfortable to wear...I hardly notice I have it on. There is a cutout in the stoma cover so your bag can still work without any problems. I no longer have to worry about my stoma getting banged around, my tummy is flatter, and it gives me a boost of confidence.

Because I am concerned about perspiring when I go to Mexico next month, I have purchaed a second Stoma Guard belt from  

This will allow me to change belts and wash the other if it becomes soiled.

The price is $172.00 US, and to me, worth every penny.
