I was happy to read this post because I was thinking I'd never be able to wear my jeans until after my takedown surgery! My abdomen is still sesative so I live in pajama pants, or a pair of loose cargo pants when I go out. My jeans and shorts hit right where my stoma is, so I was afraid of damaging things.
However, my other worry is, if my belt slips below the stoma, will the output still find its way beyond the belt-line or will it get backed-up above the belt-line?
(I hope I'm not highjacking your thread. I just thought it was along the same lines so I would just continue the conversation here.)
