Hi Everyone hope you are doing well

Myself and Chris both have stomas, we are having a ostomate only swimming session in our local area Derry/L'Derry. It is open to everyone!! Theres always alot of Questions concerninh swimming such as will it come off, can anyone see it and do I need to wear special swimwear!! 

In my personal experience I haven't had any issues but would love to hear your views or share your experiences of swimming? Different people have different tips which myself and many others will find so useful.

Please feel free to ask me any questions or concerns that you may have. This initiative is a pilot run to have a support group up an running in the future with future activities being planned.

  • Hi, what a lovely idea to have a stoma only swimming session, I have never felt that I could swim with my bag, I worry that the stickiness of the bag won't be as good after, and hate the feel of wet bag. I tend to be the one who watches the belongings at the beach while everyone else goes in the sea.But the idea of swimming baths is similar. Am not afraid to show it. Hope one day I might brave the water. Clare
