would this work in my favour
Having recently had major bowel surgery and left with a stoma,im now a bit more apprehensive about my riding,As to how i protect my stoma,so my question is would wearing a type of body armour suit type thing be of any benefit?partly to protect my stoma and partly to reduce the chance of my bag splitting if i have an off….
Not looking for stormtrooper grade armour but something that will give me peace of mind and some form of protection to my lower torso.waist to mid torso range….

Yeah, just been digging back through Andy’s Blog, sad times. He got some kit from these guys: http://www.ostomyarmor.com/
It depends on what you ride, but a belt like that is more aimed at MX type stuff isn’t it?

It gets a bit sad at the end 🙁 but might be worth a browse.
Thanks Superdan,really sad reading,its amazing that he managed to fight on so long as somedays im hardly wanting to get out of bed and i only had Crohns…BOWEL DISEASE.it doesnt take any prisoners,very hard to live a normal day to day life,but now ive had my op,hopefully i can get back to a certain degree of normality.I’ll be looking into that stoma guard,it looks exactly what i need,thanks again for your time

@Crikey,ChunkyMTB &Larrythelathe thank you for your kind words,my biking is one of the reasons im positive as just buying a new bike before my op,and having had so so much fun on it i’ll be damned if im letting this beat me.
