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 ...

    Hi Avon. Thank you for your comment. This webinar will give you lots of information regarding skin care of the area surrounding a stoma, but if you’re looking for other information on the topic of skin care, we recommend these articles: Skin Care and Your Feeding Tube, Incontinence and Skin Care and Male External Catheters and Skin Health.

    Hi Aimee – would this be appropriate for a patient?

    Hi Katie. Thanks for asking! While this webinar will be fairly clinical, we’ve discussed the content with Laura, our Ostomy Lifestyle Specialist, and she thinks that much of the information may be helpful to someone with an ostomy – it may help them better understand their peristomal skin and its needs and determine when a skin condition warrants heading to the doctor. We definitely welcome those with ostomies! Thank you. -Aimee, Shield HealthCare

    Hi Sheila. Thanks for your question. Once you’ve registered, you should receive an email (please check your spam folder) that should have a link for you to join the register.

    I watched this webinar and while it was very informative- I was unable to view the slides she was referring to. Is there something in the settings area that would allow me to see both the speaker and the slides? I am asking for the purposes of watching future webinars or perhaps to watch this one again on the Sheild or Weci site. Thank you!

    Hi Amber. Thanks for your question. To clarify – were you able to see Joy’s webcam and watch her present? If you were unable to see the slides, a few troubleshooting techniques I would recommend would be to try a different browser or hold Alt + Tab on a PC (or Command + Tab on a Mac) and select the GoToWebinar/GoToWebinar application to make sure that it is not minimized or covered by another window. Hopefully that will allow you to watch future webinars without any issues. This webinar was recorded and will be available via a link that we will be posting on this page by the end of the week, so be sure to bookmark this page. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you. -Aimee, Shield HealthCare
