Christmas Vacation quote! We have been curious about the stoma guard so really glad to see that you recommend it. The issues about it protruding out is something we'll have to consider before buying it. But overall looks good and glad you liked it!

Most guards will protrude, it's just a matter of how much and do they still function well. I don't know how thick some of the other stoma guards are, but there are plans for a flatter version of this specific guard.

Thank you so much for the review! Many have tried it and are pleasantly surprised to find how comfortable it is to wear! We are currently seeking coding for the product to be covered under Medicare here in the states, as we want anyone who needs one to be able to afford one. Hopefully, it won't be long before we can come out with the flatter version. But, many thanks for helping to get the word out...no man is an island and thankfully, we don't walk alone. Your work is invaluable!

Thank you for your kind words, Donna. It would be so nice if Medicare and private insurance would cover accessories like this one. I find that products like this improve our quality of life as an ostomate, and it's a shame that some people can't afford these "extras", so coverage would be amazing! Good luck!

Thank you for this review, and many others! I am new to having an ostomy (perm ileo 7 weeks ago), and your site has been a great resource for me.

I am looking to get a stoma guard to wear when I play basketball. I like the idea of the StomaGuard a little better because it looks so much smaller. The StomaShield just looks so huge, and like overkill to me. And it looks like its length would make it restrict bending. I know you mentioned the bending aspect in your review of that guard. Does the StomaGuard actually stick out farther than a StomaShield with the smallest pad?

My ileo sticks out nicely, which I guess is what we want. :) .....except in situations like playing sports, etc. Too bad they can't make them retractable. ;) I want to protect my stoma, but not have a piece of plastic poking out that can be easily seen and bumped into.

Any additional insight or advice you can provide about these guards would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Kelly,

I'm going to send you an email with photos comparing the size of both products. I think it might help give you a better idea of the difference between the two. :)

Yep it's a shame that a little piece of plastic cost a arm and a leg.. Heck I need one in the worst way. But you know that few people can pull out money and say here.. Before I got sick I worked and had lot of money. But now... everything is barley.. Too bad for people in my same boat....

Sometimes insurance companies will pay for accessories like this one, but you'd have to ask. I do agree that it's often quite difficult to get products like this if you have no coverage or money to spend on extras.

I'm finding out that the osteomy resolution allows you to wear your flange on longer because it helps to apply pressure on the flange, allowing longer wearing time which I really like

Eric,
After reading your review of the Ostomy Resolutions Stoma Guard, I purchased it and happy to say that I am very pleased. Aside from the protecting my stoma, it also allows a freer flow of output. Thank you so much for the recommendation. Gratefully, Fred

I bought the Ostomy Resolutions Stoma Guard and I really like it . I have a grandson that is big a clumsy for his age and I didn’t want him to stop hugging me ,he always seems to hit my stoma and this guard works well with my clothes and protection from getting hurt .

My mom is elderly and has an ileostomy. She has leaks at night very often. I tought this might help her. Would you recommend the bigger gard or the low profile. She is a tiny woman with a stomy that sticks out normally. Thanks for your help. I am from Canada.

Hi Lyne,

I wouldn't consider a stoma guard for nighttime leaks - that problem should be investigated as it may not have anything to do with protecting the stoma (i.e using a guard). 

Do you have a stoma nurse you can work with to help troubleshoot this?

Hi Lyme, if the leaks are mainly at night it may be ballooning of the bag or just the bag filling up and sleeping through when it needs emptying
