5. Clothing

Print

Patient is able to discuss clothing.


The style of clothing that was worn prior to ostomy surgery can generally be worn following surgery. Some men may prefer suspenders as opposed to a belt; some people find it more comfortable to wear pants with pleats. A full, fairly snug undergarment is generally recommended to give support to the pouching system and create a smooth line under clothing.
