This invaluable reference discusses every aspect of an ostomy -- a surgical procedure that creates an alternative opening in the body for waste discharge from the kidney, colon, intestines, or bladder -- from the first shock of diagnosis through surgery and rehabilitation. The co-author's moving and motivational story of her colostomy experience is blended with information on the latest surgical techniques and equipment, providing prospective ostomy patients with both the medical and emotional know-how to confidently approach the surgery. This revised edition also contains up-to-date material on virtual colonoscopies and travel regulations related to ostomy pouches, as well as essential facts on how to safely handle sex, pregnancy, and sports after an ostomy.
