Talk to others with an Ostomy


I am a life-long ostomate. I received it when I was nine days old. I was born with Herschrung's disease. They tried several times to reverse it, but it would never take. I've been lucky, because I haven't had any issues with it since I was five years old. Now, it's just a part of who I am.
