This reference booklet adds to Shield HealthCare’s OstomyLife community with guidance on lifestyle issues, pouching systems and accessories. Our lifestyle section includes information about dressing, going back to work, traveling, telling people about your surgery, exercising and intimacy when you have a stoma.

Much of the lifestyle content was written by Shield HealthCare’s Ostomy Lifestyle Specialist, Laura Cox.
