My stoma is just under three months. I had a difficult recovery requiring extra hospital time and a wound vac. Yesterday I went swimming for the first time in years, and it was great. I spent five hours wading around on a "lazy river", swimming, sliding down a slide, and soaking up some much needed rays. I just wanted to praise the ostomy supply company for making it possible for me to wear a bathing suit and be comfortable in the water. I had no leaks, no problems. Pretty amazing products!
