Webmaster and Colostomist
Take me to Ostomyland.com
If you've read this guide from beginning to end I am hopeful that I have answered all your queries and calmed all your fears. I doubt I'll have quoshed the fears as with something as big as this approaching you'll only be totally reassured when everything is over, done with and you are back to your normal life.
My initial plan when I started this guide was to provide a site that is not only useful before the operation but will be a good source of information after the operation, maybe even years into the future. I hope this too has been achieved.
When you do go in for your operation, whether it is in a few days or a few months, I wish you well. The aim of this book has always been to prove that the main fears of a Colostomist-to-be are nearly always unnecessary yet totally understandable. You are not unique by any means.
During your stay in hospital you will be surrounded by professionals who have seen it all before, and by your family and friends who care about you a great deal. With their combined help you'll quickly be get back on your feet, ready for anything.
