Ostomy Education

Questions occur as a new ostomate plans their first activities. Can you go back to work? Ride your bike? Will everyone figure out you’ve had a surgery just by looking at you? View the latest products and techniques to help your journey as a Nebraskan with an Ostomy.

We'll walk with you through ostomy journey

Lincoln, Nebraska Ostomy Association provides tools for ostomates.  According to Mayo Clinic, it takes time to be comfortable with an ostomy.  Connecting with community can help.

Due to challenges with coding, determining number of people with ostomies can be tough, but a report by the United Ostomy Association estimates that 500-800,000 people have a stoma in the U.S. and 120,000 new surgeries are performed each year.

You can do many of the same activities you enjoyed before your colostomy or other ostomy surgery.

You can ask questions that you might be embarrassed to ask your doctor or nurse. And you can get tips to help you adapt to life with an ostomy.
