After waking up from surgery to an unexpected situation of a stoma I was confused and upset as to what to do, however when I was introduced to the Stoma team from Whiston Hospital NHS my fears and worries were alleviated.
My Stoma Nurse Jo Rooney who is a credit to her team helped me through everything by being supportive and professional offering me help and advice with all aspects from caring for my stoma to diet and exercises.
She was always on the other end of the phone if I needed her when I was worried and quickly put me at ease. The home visits I had from Jo were reassuring to me to know that I could ask anything as she was caring and had a vast knowledge of Stoma care.
Thank you Jo so much for everything you have done for me I cannot tell you how much you have helped me through this difficult time with your compassion and professionalism.
