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 Duane, we will post an article about intimacy in the next week or two, but I did talk about intimacy and having an ostomy on today’s webinar. It will definitely be posted today or tomorrow and you’ll be able to find it on our site! Thanks!
