An Ostomy Doesn’t Have to Put Your Life on Hold

ostomy-life-on-holdPorter Offers Support to Ostomy Patients

The Valparaiso Ostomy Support Group offers a forum for people with any type of ostomy to discuss issues they may be having, get tips from others and hear from guest speakers about relevant topics such as diet, swimming with an ostomy and specific surgeries related to patients needing an ostomy. The goal of the group, led by Sarah Grcich, RN, Inpatient Wound and Outpatient Ostomy Clinic Coordinator, is to help people adapt to life after a colostomy, ileostomy, urostomy or fistulas. The group meets on the fourth Thursday of each month (excluding November and December) between 6:30 and 8 p.m. in the Community Room at Porter Regional Hospital and is open to anyone with an ostomy, their family members/care givers or persons preparing for the surgery.
