Personally for me going on holiday while having an ostomy was a massive fear.
It was fear of the unknown I had so many questions about it- the ‘what ifs’ and ‘do I/don’t I’ would just go around in my mind.
But since having my ostomy I have been abroad twice, and I have thoroughly enjoyed myself both times – even though the first time I went away was just 3 months after surgery, so you can imagine just how scared I was!
But of course, I did have to prepare myself to ensure I was confident and equipped during my time away.
So for, anyone with an ostomy who’s lucky enough to be going away at this time of year – here are top 10 tips to help you, to make sure you have as incredible a time as possible.
