Ostomy Lifestyle is a UK charity that provides support, advice and information to anyone affected by stoma surgery on their bowel or bladder.
Its free helpline offers information, advice and support to anyone who has or may need to have any sort of bowel or bladder diversion, including colostomy, ileostomy, urostomy and ileo-anal pouch. It also assists family, friends and carers who may be concerned or need support themselves.
You may prefer to email the helpline. If so, please remember to include key information such as what type of stoma you have, when and why you had your stoma formed, along with your query and any photographs that may help.
Helpline operators are available from Monday to Friday 10.00am - 3.00pm. All helpline calls are taken by trained operators who have had stoma surgery
