I am very new to this Ostomy thing. Not quite a year yet. It was trial-and-error in the beginning but I have pretty much mastered it. In the hospitals they tell you nothing. Nurses know nothing. I have been to 4 hospitals and only one had an ostomy nurse. It's groups like this on the Internet where you find answers and get all kinds of feedback. Thank you for accepting me and I am looking forward The meeting a bunch of friends in the same boat.

I went into the hospital to have cancer removed from my small intestine. The doctor was unable to remove that cancer. I woke up with an ileostomy bag, Without any previous warning. I had no idea what it was.
