Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,295 members


New to this colostomy thing (July/2016). Interested in chatting with others about the situation. Especially about what is safe to eat. My emergency surgery was due to Diverticulitis with an abscess. (Doc said that my small intestine had poked a hole through the large intestine and this colostomy is permanent although he will re-evaluate it in 6 months---thank goodness NO CANCER) Just so everyone knows, I'm divorced, live in North Central Texas (30 miles west of Fort Worth), work full time, own my own home, and would love to make new friends that understand what I'm going through with this bag hanging off of my body.
