Watch Laura Cox, Shield HealthCare’s Ostomy Lifestyle Specialist, in her new video with tips for recovery after ostomy surgery.

Recovery doesn’t stop when an ostomy patient leaves the hospital. In this video, Laura shares ways to decrease healing time, especially since recovery time can take longer than people expect. She talks about lifestyle choices that help healing, such as good hygiene, walking, meditation, pain control and more. Laura also discusses taking time off from work, how to introduce foods back into your diet, and how to keep a positive attitude while recovering from surgery. One of the best ways to keep that positive attitude is by looking at your day-to-day progress.

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 ...
