Joined this site August, 2019... Great people here.
Revised 1/22/2020---

Have had Chron's disease half my life. emergency surgery was 12/2016 just to remove large intestine. kept anus/rectum for future hook up..Am now Post ilieo a 3 years. Hook up is no longer possible since IBD is now there. the stump.

Just want to give and take advice here. Contribute what I can: learn..share..laugh.. Meeting people socially would be so cool.

FYI- Read my post about IBD and hearing loss. Drop in to say hi. Thanks.

New Equipment I use and recommend- update 01/22/2020:


Convatec: flange cap- 401909. this cap you use for showering or intimacy. it's 4 inches round.
bag/pouch- 413334- the largest- a good 9 inches long.
wafer- 125274. good material fabric-like.
Hollister slim barrier rings - 7815
Osto-E-Z vent pouch venting valve. great item to relieve air/gas.
Brava Elastic barrier strips. 120700 by Coloplast.
Brava adhesive remover. 87266? 1.7 oz

Am also looking into Coloplast's SenSura Mio Convex Flip. This is the star fish design appliance.I think the bags/pouch system suck though.

Wear bag horizontal with a wrap daily. At night I go vertical with a belt.. Safest way to prevent blow out.
