Ostomy Travel Tips
source: United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA)summary/abstract:
In these days where extra precautions for security are being taken worldwide, it would be wise for traveling ostomates to do advance planning in order to avoid possible problems. Some suggestions are:
- Pre-cut all pouches at home, as you may wish to avoid having scissors in your carry-on luggage.
- Pack ostomy supplies in at least 2 places – carry-on and checked luggage.
- Take extra supplies in case you are stranded where supplies may not be available.
- A statement from your physician stating your need for ostomy supplies might be helpful. Also a statement advocating a private area be used in case of an extended search.
