Question: Is an ostomy considered a disability?

While many persons who have had ostomy or continent surgery may not consider themselves to be disabled, they are protected under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act against employment-based discrimination in the workplace.

Can you shower without your ostomy bag?

Many people with a colostomy have a shower or bath without a bag on. This is perfectly safe. Some people worry about water entering their body. If you have an ileostomy, we would advise you to keep your bag on during bathing, but you can remove it for a shower.

Is it OK to rinse your colostomy bag with water?

After youve cleared your bag from all its contents (with a good aim, hopefully), you can rinse the bag with water. Rinsing an ostomy bag during the process of emptying it is optional, but preferred by many ostomates: Around 44%* of people with an ostomy always rinse their bag after emptying it, 16%* from time to time.
