Ostomy FAQs

When our Ostomy Lifestyle Specialist, Laura Cox, had surgery in 2011, she recalls not knowing where to get her questions about lifestyle with an ostomy pouch answered. She remembers feeling lost and like there needed to be a place to get Ostomy FAQs answered. She now regularly receives ostomy questions through our Ask Laura feature and our Facebook community. Feel free to ask her any ostomy-related question you have or, if you would like more than one opinion, our active Facebook community is at the ready to help!

Here are a few of the questions that readers have already asked, and that Laura has given some simple, straight-forward answers to. You won’t find any sugar-coating here, but Laura always gives a smile!

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 ...
