How do I handle altitude sickness and staying hydrated with my ostomy while enjoying my trip to Colorado?
Hi Rob, that's a fantastic question!
Since having my ostomy I have hiked in a couple of high altitude places, including Colorado. I'm glad you're aware of the extra difficulties living with an ostomy can have on the severity of altitude sickness. The good news is, with preparation and a smart game-plan, you can have a great trip and hopefully decrease the chances of having altitude sickness.
