Can I go to work/school with my ostomy?

A. Unless there are other factors involved, your ostomy should not stop you from doing anything you want to do. I went through all my years of high school and one year of uni with an ostomy and so far 12 years in the workforce with no problems. Unless you feel it absolutely necessary, I would not even tell your bosses at work about it – I feel it is none of their business as long as you do your work. Please do be wary though if your job entails lifting heavy loads because you will be more susceptible to hernias once you have an ostomy.
