Did you know that you can opt to have ostomy surgery? That's what Meghan, aka @emc_brown on Instagram did after struggling with Crohn’s and Colitis. She has been wearing Convatec straight from surgery and has partnered with us to share what life is like living with an ostomy and the top products she uses including our full ESENTA™ skincare line.
“My ostomy allows me to do so many things that I once couldn’t - like comfortably enjoy a day at the beach! Prior to my ostomy, I would have been spending my day within proximity to the closest bathroom and hoping that I made it there in time.
My ostomy has given me so much freedom, allows me to live presently and enjoy the day. But when the day is over, I know I desperately need a bag change. I have had the opportunity to partner with @Convatecus and am loving their new line of skincare, ESENTA. The adhesive remover wipes are perfect for cleaning up any leftover residue.
After a long day, there is nothing better than a clean bag change to wake up fresh the next morning to conquer a new day!”
