Letterkenny University Hospital has an important message about Stomas and Stoma Care

Having a stoma is only a small part of a bigger picture and does not change you as a person

Rita Marren, Clinical Nurse Specialist at Letterkenny University Hospital explains, “Surgery that involves having a stoma can appear to be a daunting experience. I’d like to let everyone know that after the procedure, the majority of people can return to regular activities and routines with only small adjustments.
