Parastomal Hernia and Physical Activity

Patient Support Information

The fear of developing a parastomal hernia, or making one worse, shouldn’t stop your patients from exercising and doing the things they enjoy. Even if they already have a parastomal hernia, it’s really important to be as active as they can and not to fear exercise.

This guide will provide tips on how to exercise safely and feel more confident about physical activity. It is written by a team of clinical stoma nurses and an exercise specialist, and is based on the most up-to-date evidence. We hope it will give your patients confidence and encourage them to be active and enjoy exercise.
