ive been to many websites and there are dozens to choose from, Ive been nearly six weeks post op for my stoma and am starting to get out more and with a view to returning to work in a month or so. the advice given is helpful but as an osto 'noob' im still unclear as to the benefits of using a belt.
my care nurse never mentioned anything to me about belts or mufflers, she wasnt very helpful with most things actually. ive learned more from this site than from any discussion with my doctor or stoma nurse.
i would like to ask any and all the ostomates what their choice of support belt is and why, i would love some added security that isnt too bulky or restrictive and you my friends are the best to ask.
ive been to web sites that sell them, but the reviews seem a little biased and some just sound made up altogether ('this changed my life'..... says the young man on the jet ski. 'i wouldn't be without it'....... the young attractive woman on a rock climbing wall)
i would also love any links to trusted websites that sell belts.....(as cheap as possible would be fantastic )
hope your all well and thanks in advance.
