Has anyone had a deep tissue massage with an ostomy? I wasnt sure if it would affect it. I know I have mesh throughout my abdomin as well due to hernias, so wanted to make sure nothing would come loose.

Typically they don't massage your abdomen during a full body massage. All you need to do is let them know about the ostomy and you can be sure they won't. I get massage regularly and they are good about avoiding any areas you don't want messed with (I had a bruise on my leg from a car accident for example). So just let them know, then relax and enjoy. I can't wait until I'm healed up enough to go back.
