Ostomy Support Group March 2023

People with an ostomy or j-pouch in Calgary and Alberta are invited to our next Virtual Support Group!

The Ostomy & J-Pouch Support Group, hosted by the Calgary Ostomy Society, is a virtual Zoom meeting that provides an excellent opportunity to relieve tension, find validation, and connect! 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 to support those living with an ostomy or j-pouch, including diet, nutrition, hydration, and mental wellness. There will be a breakout room for ostomates & j-pouchers to allow for a more in-depth discussion regarding issues that differ from an ostomy to a j-pouch, including ostomy appliances and j-pouch function (dependent on attendees).

      Hi Karen,
      I hope you can make it to our 55th Anniversary. I know virtual meetings aren’t suitable for all. I will speak to our executive committee about this matter, as support is important for all.
      Thank you, Tiffany
