Well i am off to Turkey and i can never get hold of my stoma nurse so would please like some advice from my ostomates out there.
Anything i need to know and any tips would be very helpful e.g. flying, swimming food travel etc.
I wear convex Welland bags - will i be ok swimming? I have a special swimsuit i bought with internal pouch to hold the bag secure.
