The UOAA is a network of people living with ostomies, their website is a great resource for patients with questions and concerns about their stomas, pouching systems and the delicate details of living with an ostomy. Although we at the STL WOCN are professionals in caring for ostomies, the real experts on living with an ostomy are experienced patients!
Even more help and camaraderie is available to ostomy patients in the St. Louis area. St. Louis is unique in that our chapter of the UOAA is very active and meets every month. Please visit their website for more information.
