I am going to be going to a hotel with a hot tub and sauna.  Has anyone had problems with their pouches after being in them?  If so what problems?  If it works out fine let me know as well.

I've used spas without a problem. Just like going in a pool or warm bath except there's bubbles.
I have had an ileostomy for 33 years now due to UC.

i got in a hot tub for a few minutes at the beach (i dont like them i only got in for a minute to take a pic with my friend) and didnt have any trouble.
I stayed in the pool for 6 hours and didnt have anytrouble though, lol.
the only thing i could think might be the sauna cause sometimes sweating awhole lot will loosen it. YOu could get some waterproof tape and put it around the outside before you get in.
