For those who have undergone colostomy or other ostomies, there can be a lot of questions, trials and errors as you adjust to life after your procedure. These changes can also result in feelings of anxiety or stress, as many imagine that their quality of life may diminish. In St. Petersburg, there is an Ostomy Support Group which deals with education and support. It's open to everyone pre-operation or post-operation.5
