Bringing comfort and clarity to the what, why and how of an impending Ostomy surgery.
Following on from many conversations we have had with people who have had difficult experiences, A Bigger Life have contacted and met with the security team at the local airport to discuss ways that we can all help make the travelling experience a more positive one.
6 months after my ostomy surgery, I went on a 10-month holiday travelling around South Africa, Europe and Asia. We flew over 55,000 kilometres on 14 different airlines, and as you can imagine went through a lot of airports, security and on many flights! Not once did I have an issue! It was smooth sailing.
I absolutely love to travel and wish I could do it more often. I have travelled to the Bahamas, throughout the United States, and to Europe with my ostomy. Can you imagine sitting on a plane for more than eight hours with an ostomy? It’s possible! In fact, I am travelling back home next week and have no concerns about flying.
