Ostomy My stoma sometimes protrudes from 2" to
5" into the Ostomy pouch. Is there any danger that the belt will b put too much
pressure on the stoma?
Pat: I would suggest that you print out the information on this web site and
show it to your Ostomy Nurse or Doctor. They would be the ones to know if it is
appropriate for your situation. If they have any questions please tell them to
What Size of Belt
Hi, In measuring the
size of belt I need, I have two different measurements. When I stand & bend my
waist is 44 inches. When I sit my waist expands to 46 inches. Does the belt
shrink or expand over time through stretching or washing? What size belt do I
order??? Thank you ...Jerry.
Jerry: Sorry for the delay in answering. To measure for the belt you must lie
down on the floor and measure around the level of the stoma. The belt has
several inches of stretch so it can be fit snug. When you order your belt give
the measurement as above and you will get the right size. Any other questions
please let me know. Jack
A The Celebration® Ostomy
Support belt is four inches wide. You will measure for waist size by lying down
on a hard surface such as the floor and measuring around your body at the level
of the stoma. This will give you the size belt you need in inches. Please let me
know if you have any other questions.
I have a hernia just
beside my stoma, I want to know if these belt will help, and where can I find
the belt to buy it. Miguel P Colombia South America
A I would suggest that you talk
to your Doctor or ET Nurse and have them look at this web site. The belt will
give you support around your stoma and should help support the hernia. The belt
can be ordered from one of the three companies on the "Ordering" page of this
web site. If you would like me to send you some information for your doctors
please let me know. Thank you
Celebration® Ostomy belt I ordered
one of your belts years ago and found it worked better than anything else I have

Mr. Rossi: I am pleased that you have found us again. Please let me know which
catalogue you are ordering the belt from and if all is going well. Thank you
With this belt, can you go
swimming without leakage?
A You can swim with the Celebration®
belt. You would be best to have the pouch empty and the pocket folded against
the belt. It will not leak as long as the belt is fit snugly. The belt will take
a short while to dry so I suggest you have a second belt for when you get out of
the water. have fun. Jack
Do you take visa/how does the belt work I have some questions: 1. Do
you take Visa? I live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and would need to get the belt
shipped here. I would feel more comfortable paying with VISA then sending a
cheque. 2. How does the belt attach to your pouching system? I use convatec
2-piece system where the inside diameter of the circle clip part of the flange
is 1 3/4" and the hole itself is 1 1/8". Would this belt work with my pouch and
how does it attach? 3. Would I be able to exchange it if i received the belt and
it did not fit properly? how would i go about doing this? 4. I measure in
between 33" and 34" around my stomach at my stoma... i think that is medium is
that correct? thanks for taking the time to answer my questions! -allan
A Allan: You may order the
Celebration® Belt through Torbot Ostomy Supply. The Phone number and address are
on the ordering page of this web site. The belt is designed to work with your
pouching system. All you need to do is give Torbot your measurement at the stoma
level. They do take Visa and will be happy to help you. If you have any
questions or are unhappy with the belt let me know and I will do everything I
can to make you satisfied. Jack
Stoma shield opening The 2 & 3/8 opening
is to small for my pouching system. Is it available with a larger opening or can
the opening be made larger to fit?
Tom: We can make the opening to two and three quarter inch opening. Is this
large enough to accomodate your pouch? Let me know and we can work on it. Jack
Larger opening Jack, The 2 3/4 opening I
think will work for me. How do I go about ordering it. Is it a special order or
a stock item?
A Tom: The 23/4 opening is
a special order. There is a $20.00 fee. That would bring the belt to $130.00 You
can order it direct from me. By phone at 413 539 7704 or at PO Box 85
Worthington MA 01098. Postage is $3.85. You need to let me know your waist size.
You will take that measurement by lying down and measuring around the level of
your stoma. If you have any questions please call or email. Thank you Jack
Can the belt be worn by a woman
Also, is there a style that
accommodates the stoma and recent surgery for multiple peristomal hernias? from
a concerned mom
The belt is appropriate for both men and women it it can also be worn by
teenagers. The belt will support the stoma as to the recent surgery it would
depend on the location. The belt is four inches wide. The body of the belt
surrounds the stoma giving peristomal support. This helps to stabilize the
herniated area. I hope this helps
Will pouch be able to operate
as normal ? When wearing
the belt will my pouch function as normal or is this for limited time period ?
The web site talks about an empty pouch.
Dennis: The belt is specifically designed to allow the pouch to function
normally. The advantage is that the pocket will hold the pouch in place to stop
the pendulum effect when filling or full. The pocket can also fold to hold the
pouch securely against the body when empty. It is versatile yet completely
functional. Hope this helps. jack
Garments With the belt you describe, will it be
possible to wear belts and seat belts without hurting the stoma. Due to where my
Ostomy is I either have to wear things lower or higher. Which tends to get
tricky, without looking out of sorts.
Support Belt is very effective in protectiong your stoma from irritation due to
seat belts as well as from trauma. The die cut plastic stoma shield which
attaches to the belt is particularly well suited to afford this protection. Take
a close look at the illustrations on the web site and you will see the stoma
shield in place. Thanks for you interest Jack Millman
Swimming Please let me know if the product can be
use inside the water (beach, swimming pool or shower)
Support Belt is made of a soft Velcro fabric. It will absorb a certain amount of
water. However you can wear it in the water. Swimming or showering will not make
the belt less effective. You will however want to let it dry thoroughly before
wearing it under your clothes. I would suggest that you have two belts so that
you have one to wear while the other dries. Thank you
