Ostomy

Exercising / Sports with an ostomy


Post-Surgery

  • Initially, post-surgery exercise is encouraged, like walking and Kegels, to help strengthen your core.
  • Lifting items > 5lbs needs to be avoided for the first 6-8 weeks; this includes children, pets, laundry, mowing the lawn, etc.
  • After eight weeks, it is suggested you start an exercise program and slowly increase your ability.
  • We encourage an appointment with a physiotherapist specializing in ostomy and hernia prevention.
