Ileostomy and Exercise


I have a new ileostomy (Aug. 8) and I'm looking for advice/tips/feedback from any active people who also have an ileostomy.

Do you have a preferred pouch/flange system that works well for sports/exercising?
Any advice for managing sweat/moisture under your pouch?
Any information you think would be useful - please pass it on.

I am a former professional cyclist and I'm very much looking forward to getting back on my bike and getting fit again. I also do a lot of yoga and work-out with a TRX system.

Any and all advice/tips is appreciated.

Thank you.
