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 Michelle! Yes, most insurance companies cover ostomy supplies. We would recommend calling your insurance and asking them which supplier of ostomy supplies is covered by your medical plan. Please let us know if you have any other questions, and best of luck! -Aimee, Shield HealthCare
