Running with a Stoma

Hello just recovered from my Ileostomy and ready to start running, well jogging again before Chemo starts again.

Does anyone have any recommendations for support belts or running set ups?

Thank you !

Hi There,
Yes get onto your stoma nurse and get fitted for a support belt on prescription, you'll need a good one for running. I wear lycra bottoms for extra support.

I use a Comfortbelt and has worked well. Raced a half marathon with it last month so must be OK!
