I shower and swim with both my appliances on. I use 2 piece Colostomy and 1 piece Urostomy. I "picture frame" the flange with Nexcare Waterproof Tape. You can buy this at Wal-mart/Target/CVS for about $4.00 a roll. Swimming in a pool with Chlorine or salt water Ocean tends to lessen the time between changes. Showering has no affect on that time.
Please keep in mind that even after 2 months, your stoma and area are changing, so it could be another couple of months before that area settles down..
