Are you confused over which ostomy is which? Or, are you left wondering what parts of the body are disconnected or removed during each ostomy operation? Maybe you are just looking for a clear presentation of what ostomy surgery entails which doesn’t befuddle you with medical terminology so that you can show it to your family, friends or loved ones etc? If so, then this excellent short film from UK ostomy support charity Ostomy Lifestyle will help you do just that. It will help you learn the ins and outs of these procedures as Helen Bracey, Helpline Manager at Ostomy Lifestyle talks us through the differences of each surgery with the aid of the ingenious Anatomical Apron designed by Joy Hooper.
