So again I say that i have been off work for 6 months wearing strechy waisted shorts or pants the whole time. So now that I am back at work, 3rd day back, (i am a Lead Risk Assessor for children with lead poisoning) i wear jeans and nice shirt i have to tuck in and when i sit at my desk the top of my ostomy bag is always filled and uncomforable due to were my belt is. As much as i want to i cannot wear the strechy shorts to work and was wondering how others delt with their bag at work?
