Hello to all. I ended up with my ileostomy in 2017.

I found Vegan Ostomy  the same year as I recall.

Eric your site has been very helpful.

For the most part I have had only minor trouble keeping my devices on ect. I wear a two piece device with a belt at all times.  I'm semi retired mechanic and north of 65.

I came here to continue to learn. That said I'm looking to try a Stealth belt in the vertical position and maybe hear from anyone using one.

Thanks T J

Welcome to the forum, T J!

That said I'm looking to try a Stealth belt in the vertical position and maybe hear from anyone using one.

I've been using one for over a year. In fact, I was sent one to review a while ago and never had the opportunity to. But I liked it so much that I ended up purchasing two!

I wear it mostly while cycling, but also when I'm going out in a casual sense.

Same benefits as the horizontal version as far as support and concealment. But, it can get more sweaty if you're active.

I like that you don't have to do anything special to your appliance, so it just works.

Let me know if you have any other specific questions, and maybe even post them in a separate thread, just to keep it better organized and away from your intro post 👍

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.

Welcome, TJ. This is a very empathetic group of people with a lot of experience managing an ostomy. You’ve come to the right place.
