Duodopa question: Can you swim in a public swimming pool?


#1

I enjoy swimming at my local pool. Does anyone who is fitted with Duodopa go swimming? Or is there an unacceptable infection risk? I expect it is a pain to remove and set up the kit, but I can cope with that. It’s the infection risk I am worried about.

Hi there Martini,

I’ve taken a trawl through the forum archives and have found this thread re: Duodopa and Swimming. I appreciate it’s 5 years old but I hope the comments may still be valuable for you nonetheless.
