Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,226 members


I am a normal person who has been unlucky with health. Diagnosed with Crihns/pan colitis 10 years ago. Got it under control after 4 years by taking mercaptopurine. Had 6 good years but in March 2014 I was told I had a 15cm tumour in my large colon (turns out it had 3 lol). After emergency surgery 2 weeks later I now have stoma and chemo to come.

New ileostomy, want as much advice as possible. What to do, what not to do, when is best to eat, should I get it reversed eventually if I get the option even though Crohns means high risk? If anybody can help, wants to chat etc please get in touch :-). I am nice I promise lol.
