New: Colostomy Irrigation And You DVD
A DVD entitled "Colostomy Irrigation And You" is available from the CA at a cost of £4.99 inc p&p. This DVD explains the procedure and includes step by step video footage of whats involved.
Please note that not all colostomates have the potential to irrigate so it is essential that you consult with your stoma care nurse or surgeon for advice before trying to do so. They will be able to advise on your suitability.
To order a copy of the DVD, please complete the order form and send it with your cheque made payable to "CA Ltd" to: Enterprise House, 95 London Street, Reading, RG1 4QA and allow 30 days for delivery.
