How Men Wear Pants After Running

Are you struggling to figure out how to wear a pair of blue jeans with an ostomy after running? What many people do with their ostomy bag is to wear the bag or ostomy pouch on the outside of their pants. This is totally unacceptable if you want to look normal. The best option to cover the stoma with a stoma guard that allows for the stoma’s output to flow unrestricted. After running with your ostomy belt you’ll be more confident. The waistband of your clothing is a major source of restriction. When this happens, the stoma’s output gets pushed out the sides of the ostomy skin barrier causing an embarrassing moment. Watch the video to see Bob tighten his belt on his pants directly over his stoma.
