WHAT THE OSTOMY GROUP HAS MEANT TO ME
I have had an ostomy for 1 year and joined the Kingston Ostomy Support Group 9 months ago.
I have learned something from every person in the group. For example I learned that there was actually more than one brand and supplier of our products. I learned the pros and cons of each product. As well, I learned what to use on a flange for swimming or for daily leakage, what to use to get glue off my skin, or what to use to fix my skin. These are all issues that you don’t learn at the hospital.
But most of all, I found a group of people that you can talk to about anything. The people in this group want to help you if they can and who understand what you are living with. My husband has been welcomed by the group and has learned along with me.
We want to thank Meghan for starting the group and thank all the people who participate as members, speakers, and supporters.
