Here is how we do it
I recently had my ostomy surgery done and was having hard time going back to my regular routine. I had no idea what I should do or where I should go for help. I was really concerned about my personal life until I found Ottawa Ostomy. They not only helped me cope up with the surgery, but they also boosted my self confidence. Highly recommended!
I became a member of this website back when I had my dad's ostomy done. Back then, there were not enough ostomy exposure or resources. Finally with the launch of Ottawa Ostomy website came a world full of resources, education and knowledge videos that helped us so much. I recommend all of you to become a member of this organization an open yourself to the world of ostomy.
