Ostomy & J-Pouch Support Group
November 20, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am MSTFree
Join the Calgary Ostomy Society for our upcoming Ostomy & J-Pouch Support Group.
Do you have an ostomy or j-pouch? You are not alone! This virtual Zoom meeting is an excellent opportunity to relieve some tension, find validation and get connected! Hear from others with an ileostomy, colostomy, urostomy or j-pouch of all ages with whom you can truly relate. Spouses and support persons are welcome to attend.
We will discuss various topics, including diet, nutrition, hydration, appliances, and mental wellness. There will be a breakout room for ostomates & j-pouchers depending on the number of attendees present. The breakout rooms allow more in-depth discussion regarding issues that differ from an ostomy to a j-pouch, including ostomy appliances and j-pouch function.
