Thriving After Ostomy Surgery
To help people who haven’t yet had ostomy surgery better understand what life really looks like on the other side, we’ve teamed up with Alive & Kicking to answer five key questions about life with an ostomy. Share this website with others still adjusting to their stoma. Or, share how you thrive by telling us what other questions or experiences you would add!
Kids Ask: What is a Stoma?
People often wonder what to say to others, especially to children or grandchildren, when they first learn about an ostomy. While what kids ask can sometimes be surprising, their sincerity can brighten your day. We brought kids and ostomates together to learn about stomas for the first time. Hear what they had to say.
