me+ Services and Care

In the early days after your operation, there’s a lot to come to terms  with, and it can be a difficult and challenging time. But having an ostomy doesn’t have to stop you from living a completely normal and healthy life.

In fact, many people with an ostomy are surprised at just how well they adapt and in many cases their quality of life improves. The me+ Recovery series is designed to guide each person step-by-step through recovery, after surgery and beyond.

Guide To Recovery TN En

The Your Guide to Recovery handbook provides you with information about recovery after surgery over the weeks, months, and years to come. But please don’t feel overwhelmed. Just take your time; we’re here for you every step of the way.

With the approval of your healthcare professional, you should be able to start these recovery movements 3-7 days after your operation, or as soon as you feel ready. Then continue when you are discharged and back home. These moves are also ideal if you had surgery some time ago but have never done any abdominal recovery exercises.
