Colostomy

Most people who have an ostomy live active lives. You may want to ask about local ostomy support groups in your community.

Taking good care of a stoma and knowing what to watch for is extremely important in preventing serious complications.

It is important for you to notify your doctor if any urgent signs or problems occur. The earlier problems are noticed, the better the chances are of correcting them!
