Unfortunately my ostomy sight is also at my waistline. How long ago was our surgery? My stoma started out at 2 1/4" back in February and now my stoma is 1". I have had some wafer issues but I am wearing elastic waist pants all the time or scrub pants. You may want to try a different company for supplies. I also use skin prep and paste which tend to help a lot. If you have not tried hollister supplies you ca go to their website and order samples (just make sure you also order the proper flange and bag since their new image line doesnt coordinate with center point and lock system. You may want to try a flange that has a tape border or maybe one without depending on what type you are using now. I am not sure how frequently you are changing your flange but maybe try 3 to 4 times a week as opposed to 2. If you use a one piece you may want to try one that you can empty rather than having to change the whole bag each time.
