About
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 there..it will get better.
