If you have a urostomy, a colostomy, an ileostomy or a tracheostomy, there may be certain things you need to think about before you travel.
Your stoma nurse can give you advice about issues such as:
- your diet while you’re abroad
- activities such as swimming
- the effect of high temperatures on the adhesive used to secure the stoma bags.
If you have a urostomy, colostomy, ileostomy or tracheostomy, there are specialist organisations that can give you information specific to your condition. You can search our database of helpful organisations.
