In this video, Joy Hooper is introduced by Laura Cox before explaining the difference between several types of common ostomy diversions (also called ostomy procedures), from ileostomy to colostomy to urostomy. She uses her apron to demonstrate how the surgeons create the diversions.

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 ...
