The information in this handbook and series is not intended to provide medical advice. You should speak with your health care professional before engaging in physical activity following stoma surgery. In the event you experience pain or discomfort, stop the activity immediately and contact your health care professional.
When you’ve been working through Green Phase 1 for a few weeks and you feel confident with the moves, you’re ready to move onto Blue Phase 2, with your health care professional’s permission.
There is no set timeframe for how long to spend on each phase. Much will depend on your condition, recovery and previous well-being. Only progress when you are ready and can complete all of the Green Phase 1 moves easily and comfortably.
