Swimming with ileostomy

Sun, November 28, 2010 1:25 PM

I enjoy swimming and wear a spandex shirt to cover my pouch and hold it in place. Would be interested in hearing from other men in this situation, what do you use? Is there a belt of some kind that I might be able to try?

I have been doing Hurghada Diving for quite some time now and I always also use a pocuh. I think that a pouch is the best thing to use as it is most comfortable and easy to use.
