Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida is one of those places that you have to put on your bucket list. If you have an ostomy and/or IBD there may be a few things you should know ahead of time.
Some ostomates have concerns about wearing a seat belt, while other ostomates have had problems while trying. The Ostomy Protector aims to help with this problem by providing a unique solution to protecting your stoma.
Here’s the presentation I gave at an ostomy education event for World Ostomy Day 2016!
I’m a big fan of stoma guards, because they can come in handy in so many situations, but their design often creates a few challenges.
In this review, I’ll be looking at a unique stoma guard called the StomaDome.
My daughter invited me (read: begged me) to go to Canada’s Wonderland with her because a friend wasn’t able to go. Let me say that I haven’t been to Wonderland in maybe…. 20 years, which means that I’ve never been on any of the large rides that she loves to go on.
While there are many clothing options for women who have an ostomy, it’s not so easy for men. Surprisingly, I haven’t found many resources which deal with men’s clothing challenges, so I’m hoping this post helps you guys out.
While many ostomates aren’t looking to protect their stoma from impact, a stoma guard can still be an extremely useful accessory when it comes to seat belts and clothing. I’ve worn the StomaShield guard for nearly two months, and I’m excited to bring you this review.
Protecting your stoma from impact is a real concern for any ostomate. Playing sports, doing office work, even interacting with the family dog can be risky business if we aren’t careful, but being worried about it isn’t something we should be doing 24 hours a day!
Having an ostomy doesn’t mean you have to limit the things you enjoy. Many ostomates play sports or work demanding jobs, yet driving often becomes a source of stress because of one thing: the seat belt.
