Summary

Summary

An ostomy is an opening on the abdomen created by a surgeon to allow waste material to be expelled. The operation is performed as a lifesaving measure when the body's normal system for expelling waste no longer functions. With practical guidelines and emotional support for ostomy patients and their families, this book addresses all aspects of postoperative care as well as such sensitive issues as social situations and sexual intimacy.
