Controlling weight gain with an ostomy

Gaining weight after stoma surgery is quite a common complaint amongst the ostomy community, and it can be quite distressing to feel like you have lost control of another aspect of your life.

If you want to try and take that control back, first you need to be able to identify the cause. I asked the community what they thought the reasons were for weight gain after surgery, and this is what they said.
