Travelling with a stoma – update

I spoke to our airline last night about taking my ostomy supplies, specifically my adhesive removal spray, in my hand luggage and they guy I spoke to was so helpful; he said that it isn’t a problem so long as it’s within the 100ml liquid limit and I’ve got my travel certificate with me. This made me very happy. My spray bottle is only 50ml and Charter give a multi-language “travel certificate” with their welcome pack. The certificate is about credit card sized and has space to list yours and your GPs details, what you are carrying and why.

I highly recommend that if you are flying, call your airline to check what their policies are on certain medical supplys if you are not sure.
