Is it OK to wear my Ostomy Bag horizontally?
I am worried about wearing my ostomy bag in a horizontal position.
Is there any medical reason it needs to be vertical or is it ok?
I wanted to try out the new stealthbelts everyone is talking about all over the internet.
They are the only company I have ever seen who make cool colors and sexy desings for an ostomy belts.
I talked with Richard the owner, he said he has worn his for 2 years and said he has had no problems wearing it horizontally.
I would love to try one but want to have some input first.
Looking for Help.
Thanks El.

The new belts you are talking about sound great, i suppose the only obvious reason for wearing the bag vertically is gravity and fluid runs better down than across. I wouldnt have thought it does any harm, thou i am not any way a medically trained person. Do you have a link for these bags you could share. I suppose the only way to find out is to try it :)
