Back brace

 
This is the best website for people with an Ostomy. So much understanding.

Does anyone have any suggestions for wearing a back brace with an ostomy. I have arthritis in my low back and probably mid back too. I can’t find a support back brace for someone with an ostomy. 

 

I would think some of the wider ostomy belts would work.    Or maybe this..

There’s a couple others also that are wider and would probably work, but they didn’t come up right away in my search. I believe one is made by one of the ostomy bag/supply companies if I remember right. BTW, is that your birthday 121968? If so, mine too.

You’re welcome. I’ve searched a lot for belts so I knew there were wider ones. And since you pull them tight, I figure there would be added back support with them. Nobody has ever offered to celebrate the greatest day the world has ever known with me. 😁

Oh my goodness, I have had so many backbraces, but none of them worked with the ostomy pouch! After I had my surgery, the nurses in ICU ended up cutting a hole in an elastic brace that they had--and it seemed to work. I don't wear it very often now, not because I don't hurt, but cuz I'm too lazy to put it on--lol

That could work to if a person already has a brace. Some braces have support bars/bands in them so a person would have to make sure cutting into any of that wouldn’t effect the support of the brace.
