Wheelchair-bound and ostomy...

Posted by ChuckL, on Fri Sep 06, 2019 2:08 pm

I would like to hear from those who are in a wheelchair and have colostomy/urostomy either or both... Especially if you spent years without one and went to one. How did you manage before, how do you manage now?

Hi from Baltimore.you bring up a very good point and question. I’m not in a wheelchair but my friend is and she needed the stomy to make her life better.or easier to get to clean up from not having a pouch or bag 💼.when I was in the middle of cancer treatment I met people having ostomy because they were bead ridden or wheelchair ridden.we ostomy people have to watch what and when we eat and how we clean up behind our self.  Good luck from Baltimore
