Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,312 members


I recently had ileostomy surgery two months ago as the result of a Volvulus. Unfortunately, I’ve experienced numerous complications multiple prolapses, a revision due to the first prolapse, and parastomal hernia. I have a great support system, but I still feel very alone because I know nobody personally who lives with an ostomy of an kind, so I’d like to meet people who can relate to what I’m going through, and provide support and friendship during this difficult time. Also, I would appreciate my new ostomate friends to be able to answer some questions only a person living with an ostomy would know.

Professionally I’m a social worker so I know the importance of asking for help, and being able to talk about walk you’re feeling with people who get it. So I’m hopeful I can meet people on this site to talk to and share our experiences living with an ostomy and life in general.
