To ask Ostomy Related Questions:
Do you need to ask ostomy-related questions? Need support from a fellow ostomist? Want to ask advice?
Without doubt, the easiest way to get answers to your questions is via the Message Board/Forum the site has.
Whereas emailing your questions to me will get an answer eventually, you'll have an answer quicker with the Msg Brd and on top of that more people will read
it and so you'll get more opinions on your post.
Not everyone likes using message boards though. Therefore people can still email their questions to me and I will do my best to answer them.

I can only really offer advice on the Colostomy lifestyle, cleaning etc etc.
I am not medically trained. I am not a doctor. I am not a stoma nurse. Im just a 29 year old Colostomist. Hence the following...
1. I cannot and will not give advice on your illnesses that may be leading to a colostomy.
2. I cannot and will not tell you if you should or should not accept your Surgeons plans or if he or she is correct in their diagnosis or surgical plans.
3. Any advice I do offer should be confirmed with your Stoma Nurse or Doctor first as appropriate before being acted upon. It is your responsibility to check the accuracy of all information contained in the reply before being acted upon. That said all replies are sent in good faith and are based on my 6 years with a Colostomy and 20+ years with Bowel Disease and are believed to be as accurate as my limited knowledge allows at the time.
I live in England, UK. Therefore my area of knowledge revolves around UK services and such like. However, over the last four years that this site has been around I've learnt a lot of Worldwide relevant information that helps me answer peoples queries so I do take queries from all over the World.
By emailing me, you acknowledge that you understand and accept the above points and agree to abide by them.
Finally, If I cannot help you, I will not ignore your email, I shall reply and let you know that I am unable to help and wherever possible I try to supply contact details or website's addresses to people or organizations that can help.
Response times: I aim to answer all mail within 48-72 hours however because of the sheer amount of mail this site generates it may take longer.
If this form fails to work for any reason, you can email me direct here but please only use it if the form fails as the information on it is important. Thanks.
