Able to dress

I was a little skeptical about the Stomashield before I ordered it. However the return policy was so good that I had to try it. This was one of the best decisions that I have made. The stomashield has allowed me to be able wear pants with a belt again. It also allows me to be able to wear my motorcycle leathers without the concern of mashing my stoma. Seat belts are no longer a problem either. The bag can freely fill even while seated with this shield. I would highly recommend that all with an ileostomy try this shield.

Stoma Order from Singapore

Hi there. I certainly recommend buying StomaShield. It took me two years after being a stoma patient to finally find this gear which helped me to wear my old jeans and trousers again. I had put my old trousers in my cupboard since day one after my surgery because of my stoma and waistline. Now,i feel like i don't have a stoma at all while wearing my favourite jeans. Good job StomaShield. In case you're wondering how long i had to wait for my order,i waited 7 days for it to be shipped from US to Singapore.

Stomashield 3 piece set

Having the 3 sizes of shields to experiment with really helped to sort out which one works with a particular situation.For future design consideration maybe look at a way to have the shield loop over the top of the pants rather than use the included belt.

Gamechanger

I’m about 6 weeks post op. Right side oriented ileostomy. I bought this a few weeks after the operation and tried it on with some stiff raw denim jeans… it was too much too soon. I switched over to a slightly stretchy pair of jeans and it worked pretty good. My healing wasn’t (and still isn’t) completely done so there was initial some discomfort with the pressure of having a leather belt and jeans being cinched tight enough to hold the waistline of the pants on the shield. After using it for a few days in short stints I got used to it and the discomfort went away. I can wear all my pants again. (Even the 18.5oz raw selvedge). I hadn’t worn anything but sweat pants and hospital robes for several months leading up to getting the StomaShield. It was **** with my head not being to dress like a participating member of society. Initially there will be some discomfort, there is a (to be expected) slight bulge from the shield. I’m using the Medium shield and have stepped down from the thickest Velcro pads to the mediums and hopefully soon to try the thin pads. The fact that it comes with all three sizes of the plastic shields and all the different thicknesses of pads is very helpful so you have optionality and can find the right fit. It’ll take some experimentation. I don’t write reviews for things, I felt compelled to with this product because it helped me so much psychologically that I’m grateful and happy to lend any endorsement.

impressed

I had a urostomy due to bladder cancer in 2011. I have adjusted and get along fine with it. The biggest issue for me was not being able to tuck my shirt. I tried the suspender thing which was ok for certain occasions when i needed to wear a suit and tie... the problem was i had to be especially careful when sitting and the bag filling.... i blew the seal once and hated that solution. I am a machinist by trade and experimented with different shield designs of my own using stainless steel sheet metal. I could never get one to work to my satisfaction. When i saw the StomaShield i was pretty excited as it was very similar to my own designs. I bounce back and forth between the medium and large and will most likely settle on the medium. My stoma is located in between the two. But I can now tuck my shirt and not worry about the blow outs... so I am impressed with StomaShield as it works as described and once I get used to my change in "routine" all will be good.

Very pleased. I wear a convex baseplate so to get dressed I need a guard! This works perfectly.

Too soon?

Looks good but maybe I made my purchase too soon. One side of the shield rests in the abdominal incision through my navel. It is not healed enough to have anything pushing down there. It looks like good quality and good value considering you get three sizes. I'm sure I will make good use of it once I am more healed.

Great for sports

I bought this product mainly for sports. I used it for softball and it works great

An excellent product. Makes my life easier.

Piece of mind.

Wearing this device gives me piece of mind while I am performing activities.

works as advertised

Haven’t used it extensively yet, but it is very comfortable and solves the pants problem.

It’s definitely making a difference

I just had stoma surgery and now I have a urostomy. It’s been challenging but I ordered the Stoma Shield. That’s been a bit of a game changer. I can now where jeans again without feeling like the ostomy is in the way.

Great!

It's not perfect but it is great...well worth the money, no question!

Good value

Works well even having two stomas. Easy to fit and wear and helps to reduce the number of leaks I've had by keeping the pouches securely in place while I go about my daily activities.

Feel safer.

I like the medium and large sizes and ordered a second belt.

Very good product and value

Recently had colostomy surgery and started looking for products that would allow me to wear my regular clothes but allow me to protect and kinda hide my colostomy bag. Then I came across this and it’s perfect!!

I encourage anyone to give it a try

I found a variety of covers and belts but nothing I tried really did what
