Taking the stigma out of stomas

April is Bowel Health Awareness month and we're joined by some inspiring people who are trying to raise the profile of bowel disease.

When Judi Spiers' husband Rik had part of his bowel removed, leaving him with a stoma, the pair set about inventing a product to make living life a little easier. Their efforts resulted in the RikSack, a handy bucket that helps stoma patients to discreetly change their bag.

Judy joins us on alongside blogger Sam Cleasby who hopes to break the 'taboo of poo' by posting pictures of her stoma on her blog So Bad Ass, and leading colorectal surgeon, Dr Ian Daniels who will give his advice on spotting the signs of bowel disease.
