Hi, this may seem like a silly question but I’ve been cleared to start going back to the gym and I was wondering if anyone else has gone to the gym after getting their ostomy. I am anxious to go back to the gym but I am worried as well. I have so many questions that keep going through my head.......”what if I sweat so much it makes the bag start to come off?” “What if I do something to cause my bag to leak?” “What exercises are ok for me to be doing?”
Also we are planning a trip to Cancun but I am so worried about going swimming with my kids, does anyone have any ideas on swimming with an ostomy? We also go to water parks a lot which as you know has a lot to do with being in the water, I’ve been told only 30 minutes at time but I was wondering if anyone else has experience with this. Being in Texas I find it hard to be outside unless I’m in a pool or a water park.
I’m just a mess I am still so new to the ostomy life and I have so many questions but it’s all so overwhelming.
Thank you for any advice.
