Webmaster and Colostomist

Take me to

Chapter 02: Author's/webmaster's note

This guide has been written specifically for the younger Colostomist-to-be, especially those in their late teens and early twenties, their partners and/or their immediate family.

While I was waiting for my Colostomy I bought, and borrowed, a couple of books on the subject to try and ease my mind, and while these books were still a wealth of information they didn't really tell me what I was wanting to hear as an adult in my early twenties. The books were all about twenty years old, way out of date and written by the older generation for the older generation. They mainly concentrated on the appliances and diet side of things rather than routine and what to expect before, during, and after the event.

This book aims to address this with a complete guide to help ease any worries there may be towards having a Colostomy, and to be an invaluable source of reference for the years to come whether you are twenty or eighty.

Of course you don't have to be a young adult to still find this book of interest. Colostomists problems are universal regardless of age, only our priorities are different once we get older.
