Ostomy FAQs

When our Ostomy Lifestyle Specialist, Laura Cox, had surgery in 2011, she recalls not knowing where to get her questions about lifestyle with an ostomy pouch answered. She remembers feeling lost and like there needed to be a place to get Ostomy FAQs answered. She now regularly receives ostomy questions through our Ask Laura feature and our Facebook community.
