Join our support network

Here at Comfizz, we are willing to listen to your stories and questions in relation to ostomy life and our products. Of course, where we can help, we will, but it is important to remember that we are not medically qualified. 

We do have ostomates within the Comfizz family and also have experiences personally and some of our Comfizz family members have Inflammatory Bowel Disease, so we are always on hand to happily offer a listening ear (or eyes over social media and e-mail), empathy and support.
