Hi everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and keeping cool!
I have had my temporary ileostomy for almost a year now. I have not taken a bath since my ostomy. I know it's okay to shower, bathe and swim with you appliance on, but is it okay without an appliance? Basically, I will be house sitting for several days and they have a whirlpool tub :) I was thinking I may want to try it out. So is it okay to sit in a bathtub, water completely submerging the stoma, without an appliance? I really don't know, so I would love some advice!
An obvious problem would be the output making the water all gross, but is there anything else I should be concerned about? I also should mention that I have pyoderma grangrenosum around my stoma that is currently improving.
I thank you all advance for your help! Everyone here is wonderful! :)
