Ileostomy ileostomy

“My ileostomy hasn’t got in the way of my career”

Sarah, 34, ileostomist and Marketing Manager

Before my surgery, I didn’t even know what an ileostomy was. I thought it was something that happened to old people – not me! And naturally, I had tons of questions. Would everyone in the office know about my surgery? How would my staff cope while I was away? How soon could I get back to work? I found lots of answers through Salts and the great people on this website.

Whether you’ve just been diagnosed, recently had your operation or are an ileostomist living with a stoma, this section contains all the information you need. It’s also a useful guide for carers or parents of children who are going through the same thing.
