Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,240 members


Well almost a year as an Ostomate and at this point I guess we are all old pros. It is an evolving life of new practices and experiments that lead up to living life better no matter how long we have lived it! While I first was consumed by my Ostomy, it is rarely my first thought when planning trips, vacations, life! That is a good thing! I have found helping people is my calling and I am glad to help those thru my experiences! Please message me any time! I love meeting new people!

I retired in 2016 and was enjoying it until all this happened in April of this year. I worked as a supervisor of a Chemical, Environmental, and Fiber lab in the manufacturing arena and my second career was a Case Manager/ Patient Advocate for a large private Oncology Practice. I volunteer as an Event Coordinator for the SCOA Cares Foundation That assists those with Cancer. Love to cruise and do so several times a year! I have been reading some of the postings and the information was great! I am fairly new at this and have lots of questions about the best appliances and irrigating. I should be receiving my irrigating supples within the next week and am elated at the freedom this will bring! If anyone has any suggestions, I am open to them!!

I started irrigation in August and am still working out the kinks. It has relieved a lot of my issues even though it is not perfect yet!
Glad to talk with anyone about exerpiences to help and of course get help as well!
