Medikidz Explain Stoma


Dr. Kim Chilman-Blair

Sara Westrop


Amazon - Book








Selina’s dad has damage to the walls of his intestines, which has made him very sick.  To fix the problem, the surgeons removed the damaged section and inserted a stoma – a special fitting in the tummy, which carries solid waste to an attached stoma pouch.  Selina is embarrassed that her father has a stoma, and worried that he is now somehow different to how he was.


The Medikidz take Selina on a tour of Mediland’s intestines where she learns how food becomes either nutrients or waste, and how waste leaves the body normally.  Once she understands what a clever thing a stoma is, how it works and how it will help her dad, Selina is ready to head back to the hospital and give Dad the love and reassurance he needs.


 









Sam Has A Stoma


Colostomy Association


Colostomy Association - Book

Colostomy Association - Pdf







‘Sam Has A Stoma’ has been prepared to help

young children become familiar with stoma

surgery.  It provides information to the child, who is the patient as well as to brothers and sisters, on preparation for surgery, recovery from the operation and return to full activity.


The booklet avoids reference to specific types of stoma, so that it can be used in any situation. The specifics will have to be provided by the doctors and nurses caring for the child.  This colouring book should only be used as a supplement to the information provided by medical professionals.


In explaining to a child what will be changed in the way of the body functions, it should be pointed out what will not change.  For example, if a child is to have a urostomy, it should be explained that the bowels will function as before. It is suggested that the booklet be introduced to the child by an adult, who will take the time to discuss its contents and answer questions. Following these discussions, the child may like to colour the pictures.
