I was going to include this in my other post, but I think this might deserve a posting all it's own.
While talking to the other members of my osomy support group, one lady warned me about lifting heavy weights and the danger of hernias around the stoma.
None of my doctors mentioned anything abour this.
I am currently unemployed and looking for work. If this is a real danger, I will need to know as it would be a limiting factor in finding a job.
Also, I am looking forward to re-joining my karate class in the near future. If the exersion of working out is going to be a danger, I would really like to know.
Please let me know it you all have any experience or info on this.
