From A Bigger Life
Stoma forming surgery is a major life event for the majority of people. You will want to seek support both before and after your surgery to help learn how to manage your stoma and how to adapt your life to living a normal life with it. Your first point of contact will be your local Stoma Care Nurse, they will be able to advise and guide you with any questions or concerns you may have about living with a stoma.
While these groups can be a great way to connect with other people who are in the same situation as you, they aren’t appropriate for receiving specific medical advice. There are no 2 people the same, if there is something that doesn’t seem right you should always go back to your Stoma Nurse as your first point of call.
