Helping You Take The Next Step With Confidence

Stoma surgery isn’t the end – it’s the beginning of a new chapter in your life. Ostomates can lead rich and fulfilling lives, in many cases not needing to sacrifice anything. From running a marathon to travelling to new places, being intimate with a partner, or engaging in your favorite hobby, ostomates don’t need to give up any of the activities they love. ConvaTec is here to help ostomates enjoy the best quality of life possible. Alongside our ostomy care range, we’ve put together a range of handy guides covering every step from your initial diagnosis to preparing for surgery, aftercare and life with a stoma. We’ll help you understand what to do during the surgical recovery period, what to eat, how to exercise, how to care for a child with a stoma and more, enabling you to lead the fullest life possible.
Before Surgery
A richer life as an ostomate starts with the right preparation. We can help you better understand the procedure and what questions you should ask, making entering this new chapter of your life easier.
After Surgery
Learn what to expect during the first 12 weeks after surgery, including information about emotional and physical concerns and nutrition tips.
Living With a Stoma
You deserve to live life on your own terms, without compromise—including all of the activities you love. Our resources are here to support you.
