Hi, thanks for the responses. I have a parastomal hernia, not an incisional-if that matters, but, yes, I have ordered a belt from Nu-Hope, and am awaiting its arrival. Nu-Hope said I need a special order because of the bags that I use, Hollister New Image, apparently their flange measures slightly different, and requires a special cut? It should've come today, but I don't see it yet. I am trying not to do anything that strains it, as it does seem to be enlarging. That is easier said than done, though, the doctor didn't give me a weight restriction, but even lifting a bag of potatoes off of the floor I can feel it straining the hernia area. So, I try not to do too much, but---now, I'm trying not to freak out about
my upcoming surgery.
