Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates Support | Friendship | Dating 21,175 members


I awakened with an unexpected ileostomy, due to medical malpractice, three years ago. I found out last January that it will be permanent. I'm a mother of twin daughters, age 23, and until my illness, I had a job in the medical field that I absolutely loved. Now I find myself on disability with my surgeons telling me I may never be able to work again. I'm struggling with all the changes in my life, but I am tremendously grateful to be alive. I'm hoping to find support, knowledge, and friends on this site. I would also love to meet a companion, possibly for a long-term relationship, who truly understands my new "normal".
