Adolescent (14-18 years)

Pediatrics & Ostomy

Being a teenager can be challenging enough, so needing a stoma on top of all the other changes your body is going through can make it even harder. But don’t worry − with a bit of learning and support, having a stoma will become part of your normal daily routine. You are not alone, so, while you may feel ‘different’ and self conscious, there are a lot of others just like you!
