Hi call me Ettie. I was looking for information re ostomies and lack of gall bladder when I found this site. It seems very different to other sites I had joined in the past so thought I would join up and get to know a few people. I'm on my third ileo (permanent this time) since 2011. I got mine through emergency surgery when a micro blood clot killed off most of my colon so it came as a complete surprise/shock to me. I would like to learn more about ileostomies in general, about the bags etc and how an ileostomy affects other health related issues esp. nutrition, electrolyte balance and fitness. Things I should have learned 9 years ago. I'm happy to meet and talk with other members of this group about other topics too.
