Talk to others with an Ostomy


Hi..I had severe ulcerative colitis and had my first surgery in 2001 which gave me my ostomy. It was supposed to be temporary, it wasn't! I had my last and final surgery in 2010. That is when I got my full Ileostomy. I hated it at first but now years later I am very grateful for it, it gave me my life and independence back. No more medicine or running to the nearest bathroom, no more prednisone either. I would like to meet someone who understands what I have gone through and has gone through something similar. If you are a new Ostomate, hang in will get better.
