How to dress with an ostomy is perhaps the greates challenge all ostomy patients have to overcome. When the ostomy stoma is placed at the belt line on the patients abdomen, the belt on the clothing (pants, dresses, skirts, jeans) will cross right over the stoma. The causes several problems: the movement of the clothing will chafe the stoma and cause it to bleed or the contact restricts the flow. When the flow from the ostomy is restricted, the output is unable to flow to the bottom of the ostomy bag resulting in an ostomy leak. Instead of looking for special ostomy clothing for men or specialized ostomy underwear designed for ostomy patients, choose the best ostomy belt with a built in stoma guard. Are you looking for the best pants for ostomy patients or wondering how to get dressed with an ostomy? The main problem with clothing is the waistband on the pants or jeans. By wearing the Stomaplex Ostomy Belt with the Stomaplex Stoma Guard, the belt on your dress pants or jeans will be held away from the ostomy allowing for the output to flow properly to the bottom of the ostomy bag. When the output doesn’t flow downward ostomy pancaking occurs around and over the stoma. As this continues the ostomy stoma output gets forced out which is under the ostomy wafer and this is called an ostomy leak. To prevent this, wear the Stomaplex Ostomy Belt.
