To avoid lengthy non-related threads, please only answer if you do know of a couple, or if you are in this situation yourself.

Just out of curiosity I would like to know if there is anybody out there, actually married to another ostomate?
If so, do you/they both have an ileostomy, colostomy, urostomy, or a combination of either one of them.

I have googled this question and did not find an answer.

Okay okay, if you live together, you can also expose yourself   

Thank you, bye bye

hello cagabolsa
In my 2 years of having my ileostomy I havent heard of any couple both with an married ostomy.But one of the biggest problems that I have seen on this site that when one of the couples did have an ostomy there was almost always a divorce..Its just what Ive read on these pages.But personally I think it would be fun.And if the chance comes for me to find love again I will look for an ostomate first.

And yes I can vouch for that as I am mild mannered's osty-mate!     I have been here in Kentucky for the past 8-9 months living with the superhero and ain't it just grand!

So distance should not be a problem for anyone wishing to hook up here (two continents and the pacific ocean being quite the distance)!

Cheers,

How did you two actually "meet" in person, with such an enormous geographic distance between you?  BTW - there's an awful lot of "smile-y" faces on your posts...you are obviously having TOO much fun in Kentucky!            
PS - Jo, you know that all of us gals on this site wish we had MMSHs too!       Wink

I have never heard of or known a couple who were both ostomates, though I do know a number of couples personally where one has an ostomy and the other does not.

As for me, I am a non ostomate, living with and deeply in love with a man who has no colon due to colitis. We are very happy. Smile

I met an ostomate on this site!!  He has since had a reversal ( successful I might add) and it has been a truly wonderful 15 months.!!

Forgot to mention I have an ileostomy and MMSH has a colostomy (and both are permanent fixtures).

I also know of other couples who have met on here but who wish to remain anonymous.

Cheers again,

Hi, I just wanted to say I met someone on this site as well. He lives in the UK but comes to visit and we both have urostomies. It is funny because we have similar situations even though we are from opposite sides of the world.

Hello


     WOW! Look at them results!  I myself think it would be easier and less explaining, A partner that just knows! and that enough. I do wish it was that easy. I do see alot of people on this site that have lost their relationships, and sorry to here. After the Stoma and You come home from the hospital.  Seems to be the story ..... with in the year for me,and thank goodness for that.  Oh someday I will be lucky as You couples. I think you would be able to focus on the relationship, with both of you having the same medial background somewhat.



              Take care    No gutz
