Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,170 members


First I have no experience with social sites. Looking for fellow ileos with similar problems. I have a few tricks of my own regarding appliances but the blockages are a living hell. Hopefully I can get some leads on a good gastro who specializes in ostomy problems, or a good ET. My pain from the obstructions, or adhesion, and another parastomal all due to multiple surgeries is great and I am presently planning to risk another operation at Henry Ford in Detroit. I want to add I am looking for a knowledgeable sympathetic ear and would also like to here from females but that is not a requirement. Former occupation science bio teacher, building sub after operation, retail, former production assistant ABC News NYC, masters degree, that's all folks.
