If it seemed like you had an unlimited amount of questions before your surgery, how it is that that infinite number seemed to double once you were out of surgery? We can’t answer that question, but we can help you out with many of the others. We’re here to guide you through from the first time that ostomy surgery is mentioned as a possibility to you feeling well enough to head back to work or take that first post-surgery vacation.

My 89-year-old mother loves to swim but she has found that the pouch fills with water when she gets into the pool. What can we do to fix this?

We recently had someone reach out to our Facebook community with a similar question, and several of our OstomyLife community members responded with their own advice.
 
Hopefully you and your mother will find their answers helpful ...
