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 is set up and run with the help of Ovacome members who are living with a stoma. There will be a stoma nurse available for some 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 latop, tablet (iPad) or smartphone if you’d like to be able to see the other group members.

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.

Register below. If it's your first time joining the group, you will be sent an email with the joining instructions the day before the group takes place. You will then be added to the group mailing list, which you can ask to removed from at any point.

Each month after this, you will be sent an email one week before the group is due to take place, asking you to confirm your attendance. Once you've confirmed, the joining instructions will be sent to you the day before the group.

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