Just waiting on result of PET Scan, and probably having STOMA operation done. Feeling overwhelmed so far. Trying to be positive at same time 

  • Hi  and a warm welcome to the board. Are you having your stoma fitted before you begin treatment? Yes it can be overwhelming but try to just take it one step at a time and focus on each stage of treatment as it comes.

    Theres lots of info about stomas on the stoma board and you’ll be allocated a stoma nurse at the hospital too

     Ileostomy, colostomy and stoma support 

    I’m glad you’ve found us here. We’re all at different stages of treatment and recovery and happy to help and support you through yours

    Take care
