FORUM / POST-SURGERY AND BEYOND, AN OPEN DISCUSSION
Join Erin Donohoe, BSN, RN, CWOCN and fellow ostomates in exploring the dual, and at times intersecting, aspects of life after ostomy surgery. This discussion will encompass the practical management of the ostomy and/or wound, as well as day-to-day issues of living with an ostomy, (e.g., self-image, work, relationships, recreational activities, etc.). Erin will apply her special expertise, and participants will share hard-won insights and personal experiences to address issues raised. We invite your questions and challenges for collective problem solving, sharing, and mutual support.
Remember, there is no such thing as a “stupid” question or comment,
feel free to share your thoughts
