Frequently Asked Questions Following Ileostomy, Colostomy and Urostomy Surgery
NOTE: Some of these answers are based on my own experience and others are based on information gathered along my ‘stoma’ journey.
There are some great websites, for example; the support associations for the three conditions, the Colostomy Association: www.colostomyassocation.org.uk, the Ileostomy Association: www.iasupport.org and the Urostomy Association: www.urostomyassocation.org.uk
There are also many other excellent websites, for example; www.ostomy.org, which is the United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA), www.living-with-a-stoma.co.uk which is a good site for accessories, www.fittleworth.net which has good clear information about living with a stoma. Obviously the Health Services websites in each country also have a lot of practical information.
However, for specific answers related to individual problems please consult with your Doctor or your Stoma/Specialist Nurse.
