Just wondering if anyone out there has heard of a company form the UK called Fulcionel, web address: http://www.fulcionel.com/hernias-and-you.htm
I am unable to wear hernia belts and have been wearing shapewear like Spanks, Barely There, Flexies, ect.

Also wondering about the undergarments from a company named Options. Are these supportive enough for parastomal hernias?

Thanks!

Mary, sorry I don't have an answer for you...but I thought a bump might help!

I have seen the inner wear referred by you. Infact, my stoma nurse had given me one. Unfortunately, that was meant for girls. The undy was from one of the UK companies and was costing about 120 USD. My stoma nurse told me that it should help, but I can't comment since I could not use it. I am using the normal abdominal binders for incisional hernia for the last three years.
