I used an ostomy belt when I still had my ostomy (before the abscess drain was placed) it helped due to me constantly having watery stool so it would not pull too much on the wafer. This was an issue for me since I also had a wound vac on my inscision and everything overlapped. If my ostomy leaked I nedded a wound vac dressing change too.
