Stoma and catheter I have a hospital appointment pencilled in for August 1st for a possible reversal I have a hernia as well .At times I get very depressed especially at night as I don’t sleep well and have mishaps I had my cancer removed October 11th

Need advice to combat my depression and waiting times for my surgery’s prostate and stoma reversal 

  • Hi  and I’m sorry to hear that you’re struggling. Have you had your join checked in anticipation for your reversal? Can you tell us what problems you’re having with your stoma and we’ll see if we can help? 
    Perhaps you could make an appointment with your doctor about your depression or give the support team a ring on the number below. Macmillan has joined with BUPA to offer some free counselling sessions which could maybe help you?

    Im sure some of the others will be along shortly but there is a lot of help and experience on here if you want to share what the issues with your stoma are

    Take care
