Reassuring for a new ostomate

I came across this podcast by chance after my stoma formation in December 2019 and I’m so pleased I did! Each episode has been so helpful and informative during my recovery and I don’t think I would have done so well without it. The best part has been hearing others in the same situation being honest and open about living with a stoma. We have a lot of guidance on our physical recovery but not much to help with our mental health; this podcast helped me welcome my new normal which seemed impossible at first. I look forward to the new episodes each month so thank you Salts Healthcare, please keep them coming!
