As an ostomate since 2011, Laura Cox is excited to share insight and advice from her personal perspective on day-to-day life with an ostomy. Watch Laura’s informative webinar recording covering common lifestyle questions, such as:

  • How To Handle and Prevent Leaks, including how to mentally rebound from leaks when they happen.
  • How to Take Care of the Skin Around your Stoma. The skin around the stoma is also known as peristomal skin, and Laura talks about how to care for it before and after bag changes and offers daily tips. Laura also discusses how to conceal your pouch in public.
  • Diet and Nutrition Tips for New Ostomates. Laura covers ways to prevent gas, odor and more.

Laura starts her webinar by giving a brief overview of her background and how she became Shield HealthCare’s Ostomy Lifestyle Specialist.

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 ...
