If you are having problems with your stoma products, your skin, frequent leakages or caring for your stoma, then it is important to make contact with your Stomal Therapy Nurse. The issue may be easily resolved by phone, email or face to face appointment. Remember that over time things may change such as the shape of your abdomen, your weight, the condition of your skin, the products and how you use them. Always remember to bring some of your stoma products when you go to see your Stomal Therapy Nurse, so they can go through things with you.
If you are experiencing severe pain, feeling unwell or have symptoms that indicate significant changes to your medical condition or stoma, then contact your doctor or visit the Emergency Department immediately.
