Having a stoma should not detract anyone from having a loving, caring and an intimate level of trust that may have existed prior to the creation of a stoma.

“Firstly, be comfortable with your body. We all have a stoma which was created for a reason – mine saved my life, and as such, I’ll always be grateful for its existence. Therefore, I’m not prepared to hide it away. Your partner should (in my opinion) love you for who you are. ”
