Caring for a child with a stoma
Finding out that your child needs ostomy surgery can be a difficult time. Your child will have to undergo surgical procedures, and this can be tough for families to deal with. It’s important to remember that your child is having surgery for the right reasons.
As a parent, relative or carer, it is likely that you will have many questions and concerns about the stoma surgery itself, the appliances the child will have to use, how to change an appliance, and the common problems that you may face in the future.
We will have more information and advice on caring for a child with a stoma coming to the website soon. In the meantime, please call us if you have any questions.
