hi ive been wondering about a couple of different things one is how do u go about getting a new stomal therapist i find mine is about as useful as tits on a bull lol.
 
also i heard u can get little lingerae things and stuff to go over the bags but i havent seen ne i wanted to have a look at them as ive been trying to make one myself but cant work out how to do it i hate putting it in my pants it drives me nuts so i let it hang out but i thought if i put some material on it that matched what i was wearing it wouldnt be so noticable.
 
and last but not least has anyone got any bad storys they would like to share about there doctors ect or am i the only  one that deals with the idiots alot lol sometimes theres nothing you can do but laugh.
thanks heaps people mwah

Whereabouts are you gfkak? If you're in the USA, try http://www.wocn.org/secure/Source/cDirectory/NurseRefSearch.cfm you can search for an ostomy nurse from there. If you're anywhere else then I would suggest you ask at one of the major hospitals or at your ostomy association for recommendations.

For lingerie and things, you can try http://www.ostomates.org/links/access.html where you'll find links to many sites that sell ostomy lingerie, bag covers, etc.

Hope these help you :)


I have had an ileostomy for 30 years now due to UC.
