With Christmas being so close (it's Christmas Day in just a few days), it can be a time of anxiety and apprehension if you have an ostomy, especially if you're new to the ostomy world & this is your first ostomy Christmas.
Daily routines change & everything gets mixed up, you forget what day it is & can find the changes hard, especially trying to navigate them with a stoma.
These changes can affect stoma function, especially when it comes to food.
In Ant's December video, he talks us through how he navigates eating at Christmas with a stoma (ileostomy).
