FAQ's

Stoma care is aimed at providing comprehensive support and advice to new and long term stoma patients. A stoma care nurse or carer will show you how to care for your stoma, change and empty the appliance and give advise on your diet, returning to work and any common stoma-related concerns that may arise.

Stoma care is necessary for anyone that has undergone an operation to create a stoma. This will be anyone with a colostomy, ileostomy or urostomy. If you have recently undergone surgery, stoma care after surgery is crucial to help maintain the health of the site and support you during this change.

The purpose of stoma care is to ensure that you are able to manage the condition while maintaining a high quality of life. This will extend to a holistic approach and include lifestyle guidance, psychological support and ongoing care. The ultimate aim is to empower you to lead a comfortable, independent and active life.

Having a stoma might require some adjustments initially, but it shouldn’t significantly limit your daily activities. If you’re active, you can still enjoy most sports and hobbies. While extreme contact sports are best avoided, there are special support garments, caps, and bags designed for stoma wearers during physical activity.  For travel, post surgery, you are at a higher risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and should consult with your doctor before any air travel and obtain a travel certificate. Remember to pack enough supplies for the time away and be prepared for more bag changes while travelling.

Adjusting to life with a stoma may be daunting at first. But, with the right support, stoma care will become a part of your daily routine while you enjoy a fulfilling life. Support from a private stoma nurse can help ease this transition so you can get back to feeling like yourself again.
