Once you have recovered from surgery and have the agreement from your doctor or stoma nurse, yes, you can play sports. 

Tips for getting back into sport include:

  • Gradually build up your strength and stamina.  For example, walk rather than run or gently kick a ball in the garden rather than getting stuck into a rough 5-a-side match.
  • Empty or replace your bag before exercising.
  • Consider wearing a support belt.
  • As with all sports, keep hydrated.
