Manage Your Mind After Stoma Surgery

In addition to the physical issues you face when recovering from stoma surgery, there’s also the hurdle of body image. Self-esteem is vital to making yourself well again, mentally and physically. Getting your self-esteem back may take a little while, but you can do it.

Just ask Dr. Joe Salisz. He’d been a urologist in Michigan for 20 years when he learned he needed urostomy surgery. But he knew the importance of a positive mental attitude before and after surgery to help with his recovery.

Find Your Way through “The Fog”

Confusion. Fear. Disorientation. These are just a few of the things that are normal to feel both before and immediately after stoma surgery. But this foggy feeling will pass. Clearer days are ahead.
