do they hit your stoma? i wear mine low waisted adn they dont bother me, i don't know of how you could fix them, cause if you pulled them up too much it would make them too short in the crotch.

they're low waisted?  can't you wear them below the stoma and just shorten the leg length? that's what i did..
 
you can always go see a tailor and ask them.  they know ALL about ostomies, nothing to be embarassed about with them , they modify clothes for all kinds of ppl with all kinds of medical/body situations.

The best pants for those of us that the waist line hits the stoma area are materinty pants. They are great. And this is coming from a guy. I get mine at second hand stores, goodwill, etc....
