As an ostomy support group, we offer moral and educational support to those who are facing or have had ostomy surgery. It is perfectly normal to have fear, anxiety and concern for your new lifestyle. We offer support through monthly meetings. We can also arrange to have a fellow ostomate visit you either before or after surgery.
There are many questions and anxieties when beginning life with an ostomy. Our group will help to answer these questions while providing support and understanding.
Arthur Kravitz (561-447-6977), Bruce Green (973-568-7745) and Harriet Goldberg (561-449-9697) are UOAA Certified Visitors and can answer many non-medical questions.
You may also contact the Ostomy nurse at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, Karen Larkan RN MS CWOCN CHRN at 561-955-5332 or Klarkan@brrh.com.
