Many of us with an ostomy are very concerned about developing a parastomal hernia especially during high activity like sports. This is not only uncomfortable but also unsightly. In addition, these parastomal hernias are not always repairable. If you are concerned, then I recommend the optional hernia ostomy belt from Stomaplex (shown in the video below). This wider belt is designed to support your abdomen with greater support than the standard Stomaplex ostomy belt. Many ostomates also choose this wider belt to hold the Stomaplex stoma guard in place when active with contact sports like hockey, roller derby, football, and soccer.
