This third edition of The Ostomy Book brings the award-winning classic up to date for the person who has or will have a colostomy, ileostomy or urinary diversion (urostomy), either permanent or temporary, as well as for family, friends and health professionals. Written by a mother and her daughter, the book serves as a complete but easy-to-read handbook about ostomy surgeries, ostomy care and the good life possible with an ostomy. Just as importantly, it presents a beautifully-told story of the entire experience from the first shock of diagnosis through rehabilitation and beyond.
New information in this edition includes:
- Updates on surgical procedures, including alternative procedures such as J-pouches and neobladders
- What''s new in ostomy care and living with an ostomy, from pouches to eating well to travel, from sex to exercise to insurance, and plenty more
- Changes in the organizations that support people with ostomies
- Current resources, with website addresses
“It combines in a most admirable way, factual information with sensitivity…For anyone about to undergo ostomy surgery or in the immediate post-operative period and for their families, this book should be compulsory reading…For those with professional involvement in the care of ostomates, this book will have equal appeal…I recommend it unreservedly…”
