I am new to the forum and reading about what everyone has been through makes me realize what a tough bunch of cookies us Crohnnies are!
I am hoping someone can provide me with some advice or input.
For the first time in 4 yrs I am finally in remission and my doctors have cleared me to take a vacation outside of North America.
I am headed to Thailand in September for some SCUBA Diving and sight seeing for 3 weeks.
My last surgery in February 07 left me with an ileostomy. I have been able to manage it so far but this trip will be something totally new for me.
Does anyone have any advice tips or tricks?
Has anyone been diving with an ostomy?
I have read a few books and plan to take triple the amount of supplies, but any tips or hints would be greatly appreciated!
