"Stoma and Colorectal Surgery"

About: Yeovil District Hospital

I was operated on in June 2014 and had to have an ileostomy. I was very scared but it was explained in very clear language what it was needed for etc. I made such a brilliant recovery following the surgeons instructions and following the 'Enhancing your Recovery' booklet that I was able to have it reversed in October 2014. I have nothing but praise for all the people I have come in contact with during this time. Even the admin staff for the surgeon was brilliant. Many thanks for everything and for giving me a better quality of life.
