So, I was hoping to find a thread with this topic of jeans. How ironic that I did.
When I wore jeans before my surgery, I found myself wearing lower and lower cuts of waists. I not only found them more comfortable, but "women liked them too" (LOL) and they were basically what everyone was wearing. So, I found most of my jeans at Old Navy. They tend to have a wider assortment of low-rise or mid-rise jeans. And you can find tons of them at thrift stores! They were so much more comfortable the Levi's.
But my question now, since I've not worn a pair of jeans or slacks since my urostomy, is this: if you fellow ostomates are able to wear belts, is your bag still inside your pants? I often wonder this, because I've found even some elastic waistbands tend to squeeze off the bag so much that it doesn't drain.
Another question I was wondering about is what do you MEN do at work? What if you have a job that requires a certain uniform? And maybe a belt? And your shirt must be tucked inside? Then what? I truly believe this would all be too tight on my urostomy. At one time, I tried to wear slightly looser jeans with suspenders under my shirt, but that didn't work too well.
I'll just follow this thread and see if I can gain any tips. Thanks for your time.
