Really new to the whole ostomy thing. I had surgery for bowel cancer a year and a bit ago and ended up with the life-saving colostomy. I have been trying to sort irrigation for some time now, and keep getting put off for the training by my stoma nurse who now doesn't even return my calls.
I really want to improve my quality of life, as I am a real outdoors person, enjoying sailing and motorcycling, the gym, etc. After a few pouch failures, I have seemingly turned into a passive-aggressive recluse. This really isn't me, and I want to sort this out as soon as possible.
I do understand the NHS has been dealing with the pandemic, but I would happily pay for private training. I just can't seem to hook this last piece of the jigsaw into place.
Anyone have any ideas?
