“Living with a stoma doesn’t have to be a barrier to enjoying life”
IA teamed up with My Bag and I to release a documentary about living with a stoma. The documentary, directed by Michael Durban, tackles social issues facing ostomates today such as dating, sex, mental wellbeing and day to day living.
The documentary follows ostomates Elliot and Hari who discuss individually, in an honest and open way, how life with a stoma raised fears around dating with a bag and the pre-conceptions that many new to surgery often develop.
We smash those fears and show people that living with a stoma doesn’t have to be a barrier to enjoying life.
