Recently there has been a lot of media coverage of brave ostomates baring all in magazines, Tv and breaking stoma stigmas. More and more articles are being featured of men and women embracing their stoma bags and talking openly about this. This big awareness push means the general public are becoming more aware of the word stomas or an ostomy!

However I wonder how many realise that stomas are not just down to bowel difficulties but can also be for urinary difficulties like bladder cancer, bladder disease, trauma, neurological conditions, radiation damage and many more reasons.

As mentioned in my previous post I have an ileostomy and a urostomy (illeal conduit) and due to the different levels in awareness between them both I decided to publish a video showing how I change my urostomy bag.

There are lots of colostomy and ileostomy bag changes on You Tube but there are hardly any for a urostomy so I decided to add to the knowledge well.

Here is the video, I hope you find it informative and knowledgeable. Any questions I would love to hear from you info@rocking2stomas.co.uk

My name is Rachel Jury and I have a rare illness called Pure Autonomic Failure. My bladder and bowel have failed so I permanently have an ileostomy and a urostomy. I also blog over at http://rocking2stomas.co.uk/ about my journey and what it is like living with 2 stomas and how to make the most out of every day!
