Ostomy belt

Posted by crazycatlady, on Sun Sep 26, 2010 3:21 pm
I'm from the UK and can't find ANY where to sell me an ostomy belt that is comfortable. So...I found an american site. It was expensive with the postage and packaging, but I can't believe how much wear I've got out of it!!
My ileo is placed just above my bellybutton so as soon as the tiniest bit enters the bag you can see if puffing up over the waist band of my trousers and skirts. This belt makes it flat to my body so I can wear tight T-shirts and dresses and alsorts now! I've never felt so confident!

I don't use a belt often, but I do keep one handy just in case. I use a Sur-Fit appliance and there is an inexpensive elastic belt that easily connects to it. I keep an extra belt in my office because here in NY it gets so hot and humid in the summer that my appliance can start to loosen unexpectedly. A belt usually keeps it tight until I can get home and change my appliance.
