I'm a masochist who suffered a ruptured bowel in July. I'm now equipped with a colostomy bag, which (if all goes well) will be removed in a handful of months. Now that I'm largely recovered from the surgery, I'm getting back to the dungeon. There are some obvious ostomy-related safety concerns.
OstomyArmor looks like an excellent and comfortable system for protecting the stoma, but the images show that the colostomy bag is exposed. The same company produces a kevlar bag protector, which should do the job of protecting the bag from whips, floggers, canes, etc.
Even assuming that I can protect the stoma and the bag from puncture and whatnot, I wonder about popping the bag from pressure. This is similar to the fears of sleeping face down: if I'm positioned face-down, what happens if the bag fills up with gas or stool? Can it burst, or will the adhesive seal pop free?
Online, I find frequent references to professional football players with colostomies, but nobody ever mentions how the extreme sports ostomate manages this. Whatever a football player uses to keep the stoma protected and prevent the colostomy bag from filling with gas and stool, then being ruptured from anything like impact or just falling face-down, would clearly work for me.
Does anyone have any experience or knowledge that can help me out? Much thanks!
