For those who are wondering, after certain types of surgical procedures, a person is left with a new outlet/conduit for urine or fecal matter. That outlet is called an ostomy and normally allows for the waste to be collected and contained in an externally attached pouch. Therein can lie a problem. In my case, the ostomy is close to my beltline, so wearing a belt or indeed, wearing anything snug around the waist puts unwanted pressure on it. Also, the attached pounch extends downward from the ostomy, thus making it doubley impractical to belts, jeans, slacks, etc., as they would restrict flow into the pouch. This leaves me with the option of wearing bib overalls (not unusual here on the ranch!) or flight suits (which I have used for over 40 years anyway!)
Without a belt or even jeans/slacks to hold my holster, I am restricted to wearing a shoulder rig, one without the requirement of being tied down to a belt at the bottom. Actually, I have worn a shoulder rig most of the time for over 20 years anyway, so it is no big deal to me. Since my rig can no longer be tied down to a belt, however, I now use a Galco Jackass rig for my Para-X-LTX and really find it comfortable and effective.
Now, I know that among the 155,000+ members here there must be a few others with ostomies. I'd be very interested in hearing your stories and how you've adjusted to meet your particular condition. If you'd rather not post here, don't hesitate to send a PM.
