VISITING BLUE LAGOON IN ICELAND

Sat Oct 12, 2019 11:10 am
This is a great community. Consider joining.

HI,  I WONDERED IF ANYONE HAS VISITED ICELAND AND VENTURED INTO THE BLUE/SECRET LAGOONS WITH THEIR COLOSTOMY BAG?  I HAVE EMAILED THE BLUE LAGOON AND THEY ADVISE THAT IT SHOULD BE OKAY. HAS ANYONE HAD ANY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS?  THANKS.

These are the top 5 issues ostomates face:

1. Dating and relationships
2. Concealing the pouch
3. Foods to eat and avoid
4. Losing or gaining weight
5. Pouch ballooning

Hi ray of sunshine,

 

I remember from years ago that a similar question was raised  about the blue lagoon (see post below).

Iceland is a country I have wanted to visit for quite some time (closest I have got is the Arctic Circle in Norway), I envy you living in the UK being so close to that part of the world.  Definitely want to include it on my next journey around the globe.

Hi it's a Geothermal hot spring pool. I was concerned about the minerals in the pool affecting my bag.  But they have advised it should be okay. Also you have to shower naked before putting on your swim costume. But I've found out there is a few cubicles to shower in.

Thanks for the info.I had wondered about getting in a hot tub just due to the water being so hot on the stoma.

I have been in a hot rub on cruise ships with no problem at all! 
Would not think it would be any different! 
safe travels!
