UNDERSTANDING YOUR OSTOMY BOOKLETS
Are you wondering what to expect before surgery or did you forget most of what you were taught in the hospital? You are not alone. This series of booklets is designed to answer basic questions about life with an ostomy.
Are you sure you are in the right pouch? Products used successfully in the hospital are not always the best ones to use once you are home and active. The What's Right series helps you explore alternatives that are more discreet and easy to use.
Are you responsible for caring for someone with an Ostomy? This caregiver booklet provides you with helpful information for taking care of a person with an ostomy, and for taking care of yourself in the process.
If your child has an ostomy, you will no doubt have concerns about the special care that he or she will need. Hollister has developed this caregiver booklet as a resource for you as a parent to help supplement information you receive from your doctors and nurses.
