After surgery for an ostomy, whether it’s a colostomy, ileostomy, or a urostomy, patients have many questions about a plethora of items. Many ostomy patients may think that many of their common activities they did before surgery can no longer be done. One of the biggest concerns is a return to intimacy after surgery, but by tackling this problem head-on you can have peace of mind.
Once you have recovered from an ostomy surgery returning to a “normal” life might seem like a strange idea. Truth is you should be able to resume your normal activities after a healing period. The when, how, or what exercise you can do will depend on the reason for your ostomy and your overall health condition.
Millions of people around the world encounter the need for a urostomy. An obstruction in the urethra or a problem with the bladder, such as cancer, can restrict or even block the flow of urine out of the body.
