Provide Education and Support to others Posted by stillsmiling on 02/26/13 Comments: Blazest : Hi there. Just read your profile. Wanted to let you know that there is an ostomy support group here in austin. Are you nearby? Here is a link to meetings: https://www.austinostomy.org/meetings I have a colostomy and I'm the only one in there who actually wants to have it -- I could get hooked up again but don't want to. How weird is that? Anyway, they talk about products and procedures, have ostomy nurses who attend, and occasionally have doctors give presentations. Sometimes they even had free stuff to take with. And there are people there who had had illeostomies for some time. Best to you, chat if you want. Bye for now.
