Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,336 members


I'm a student studying English, set to graduate in December. My surgery was an emergency colectomy due to toxic mega colon, brought on by ulcerative colitis. Although I had been diagnosed after a hospital stay two years ago, I lived virtually symptom free without treatment until May. Now I have an ileostomy, and am set to have J-pouch surgery within the next six-eight months.
I've started a blog to help deal with life as an ostomate
