The Lifestyle Series

Many people worry that their stoma will spoil relationships with the other people in their lives.

Your loved ones, friends, and colleagues are a vital part of your life. In fact, they can contribute significantly to your recovery from surgery and the resumption of your pre-surgery lifestyle.

We have created these booklets to help you and your family or partner understand the changes from your surgery. Each booklet contains helpful information about the decisions you may be making as you resume your personal and work life.
