Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,295 members


Greetings from China!

I was directed by a member of Inspire, which is a website that is dedicated to cancer and ostomy patients. In 2011 I joined Inspire and had the opportunities to share and exchange thoughts with fellow ostomates.

In 2011 I was diagnosed with colon cancer stage four. I have been carrying my lovely pouch since then.
In one of the discussions that members mentioned about single ostomates should form a group and seek companions and support. One member suggested this website.

I am pretty much in content with the pouch, being able to live a day longer and enjoy it is the biggest blessing to me. My surgeon calls me from time to time, he was amazed by my positive attitude towards my health and life in general.

I am not actively looking for a relationship though I do believe it is easier for me to be involved with someone who probably has been thru similar testment as I have :)
