When your ovarian cancer surgery has left you with a stoma, this can be a real shock. It can leave you feeling very alone with many questions about how this will affect your day to day life. Our online stoma group is a friendly space for anyone living with a colostomy, ileostomy or urostomy to chat with others in similar circumstances. You’ll be able to share advice and experiences in a relaxed, informal environment. You do not need to stay for the whole hour and a half; you are welcome to join us for as long as you like.

We meet on the third Wednesday of every month, from 11am to 12:30pm.

The group was set up with the help of Ovacome members who are living with a stoma. There will be a stoma nurse available for most sessions, and occasional speakers. You can join these meetings simply by dialling in on your landline or mobile phone, or you can videocall in on your laptop, tablet (iPad) or smartphone if you’d like to be able to see the other group members.

You can register to join our Stoma group below and we will add you to the group mailing list. Each month you will be sent an email one week before the group is due to take place, asking you to confirm if you will be attending. Once you have confirmed your attendance, the joining instructions will be sent to you the day before the group takes places. You can ask to be removed from the group mailing list at any time. If you register to join and the next group is due to take place in less than a week's time we will send you the joining instructions the day before the group takes place. After this you will be sent an email each month to confirm your attendance as previously described.

If you do not receive these emails from Ovacome, please check you email junk folder. Please call 0800 008 7054 if you have any queries.

By attending an Ovacome online event, you agree to our participation agreement, which you can read here. Please note that we will not tolerate any form of discriminatory or offensive comments during our event. Anyone who makes any comments that are deemed as such will be removed from the session.

We recommend that you use your personal email address to register for our events rather than a company address. This is for your privacy.
