Excellent fit for complete physical protection, both day and night! no leaks or disasters. It allows you to wear regular cloths - jeans and a belt or more formal wear with no probems, and your profile is very normal. It's a confidence builder which is really important for people who have fought medical issues.
As a new ostomate, and a short person, my ostomy is the perfect height to be being constantly whacked by the edges of countertops, tables, etc. I was finding myself feeling very vulnerable when out in public.
The Freedom Guard Belt has changed all of that. I find it astoundingly comfortable, and now I never need worry about being whomped resoundingly by a stranger's purse. I wasn't sure about the elastic belt and how comfortable it would be, but it really is a "put it on and forget about it" item. I can also wear my jeans, and pants with a waistband, which used to rub on my stoma to the point that I couldn't stand to have them on for more than 5 minutes.
Last but not least, in the car, I no longer have to pull the lap belt out an inch or so, to stop it rubbing on my stoma.
I am thrilled and delighted with this fabulous product, and thanks so much for inventing it!
A very happy customer,
I have been extremely pleased with the stoma guard. My interest in the stoma guard and ostomy belt started when I advanced in karate to a brown belt a few months after my permanent ileostomy was formed. I started looking for a product that would help me feel secure at this level. I researched and discussed the options with many active ostomates but was not pleased with the choices. Often for a slighter woman, the other products are too bulky and do not allow our bodies to bend where they need to. I am 5' 6" and 140 pounds. I contacted stomaplex and learned from inventor Bob about the Stoma Guard.
I am thrilled with the protection and security I get from it. I use the stoma guard and ostomy belt for every karate class. Honestly I never have to think about my stoma while in class anymore -- instead I can concentrate on the class. It has been liberating and wonderful.
Thank you!!! -- Michelle Mood
I am very pleased with the stoma guard as it has allowed me to lead a normal active life again after many months of problems with my stoma which badly knocked my confidence. I have an active lifestyle and after my permanent ileostomy surgery I suffered from embarrassing leaks from my stoma appliance particularly when I was driving my car, bending down whilst gardening and out walking or cycling. Since wearing the stoma guard I able to do all these things with confidence and the leaks are a thing of the past.
The stoma guard is comfortable to wear and very easy to put on and after a few minutes you forget you are wearing it. It has been money well spent as it has given me the confidence to lead a normal active life again.
A big thank you
