What are the best ways to hold the stoma appliance in place? I use Skin Tac, which helps a lot. But what belts work the best to prevent it from moving and leaking? Thanks for your reply and have a good one.

Hello al1950.

I use Hollister Urostomy pouches with the serial number 29301. These pouches are made with a lug on either side of the pouch, and Hollister provides an elastic belt with a small plastic hook at each end. They are simple to fit and comfortable to wear.

Thanks for the reply, will give them a try this week. It sounds like an elastic belt with hooks attached. Will make one in the morning. Once again, thanks for your email.

Hey Al, I forgot to mention that I wear a hernia belt.  It was custom made for my appliance by Nu Hope Labs.  It's impossible for the appliance to move with this belt.
