    Dear one, we tried so many different belts? Some good friends tried to make my husband different belts, non seemed to work they were just not comfortable. Then one day while I was out shopping I saw a soft woman's tube top and said let's give it a try? We did and I bought 6 of them, we bought them at Dillard's. They hold his cath in place and he never worries about something pulling out his cath. Which happened once and we had to have a new one put in, not a fun time for him. Google luck

    Hi everyone. I had my catheter placed about 5 weeks ago and don't really like taping it to my belly. I tried, and LOVE, those t-shirt extenders... I pasted a link to the walmart ad for them, below. The best thing is, that they have them at the Dollarama, in my town, for $2.50 for a package of 2 - so, only $1.25 each. I bought 4 or 5 packages, so have one for every day of the week (saving laundering for the weekend ! They're made out of a t-shirt cotton and wash really well and are very comfortable. My catheter is placed up high, just below my rib cage on the right hand side, so I just wear the t-shirt band right around my middle, with my catheter tube tucked comfortably and snuggly under it... but you could fold the band over, double width, if you wanted to, also. Even if you can't get them at a Dollarama, or similar store, I'm sure you could find them at walmart of various other similar stores...they just might be a bit more than $2.50...

    I bought a belt from Stickman Industries - very comfortable and reasonably priced at $23. Comes in white, black or bone and in different sizes. Love it!

    I have a cath belt from Patients Pride that is mostly nylon and is individually fitted. It fits around the stomach and I don't even know I'm wearing it. I So much more comfortable than the other belts and tape I used before getting it. They are little pricey ($99 for 3), but I got my medical insurance to pay for it. Look at]www.PatientsPride.com for details. It was recommended by my DaVita PD nurse.

    I just paid $76 for four belts. Wife likes them. Gotta check and see if between her insurance and Medicare they're covered.

    Bill That is a Very good idea using the panty hose. I have been trying to find the right kind of a belt. Honestly I would like to make my own if i could just find what one looks like. But anyway now i have more time tolook. Thanks again.

    I' m still trying to figure out the best way for me, just bought the belt, but wasn't that comfortable , Since I'm new to all that need to find what's gonna work for me best, so far it has been the tape like "mspiper"... Lets see...

    I use cloth tape and tape the tube to my tummy. I hated the belt and tried other things. Tape just works best for me.

    Re: PD Cath Belt

    I know this sounds a little silly but I looked and looked for something for Jarod to use to hold his PD cath. Well, I have 3 kids and gave it some thought. The Belly Band which is a maternity support belt is a piece of simple cloth with some elastic in the edges. It is so soft and he folds it over the cath and it keeps it in place all day. No added tape. The adhesive irritates his skin so bad and he ends up with micro tears. So maybe stop by Target or somewhere like that and look for a maternity support band. Whatever works. :-) Atleast it will be more comfortable for you. Which is all that counts.

    This is the first time I have posted to the forum but I have been reading it for support since we got the diagnosis. I really appreciate everyone's insight.

    What works really well for me is I cut off the legs of pantyhose and that is snug enough to hold the PD port tight and if will not move

    Re: PD Cath Belt

    I was a PD caregiver for five years. Have you looked at the PD Security Band? www.PatientsPride.com If you have private insurance as your primary insurance, you might be able to be reimbursed. You call them with a measuring tape in-hand and go through about a 15 minute measuring process. I've heard it's totally comfortable and it's great for active PD patients!
