Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates Support | Friendship | Relationships 23,0K + members


I am married with 1 daughter and 2 grandchildren.
I was diagnosed with bowel cancer in January 2020 and had an op in April and ended up with an ileostomy. Had lots of problems with pancaking at first but eventually realised i needed a different type of bag which has made a big difference.
I love meeting my friends for lunch and a chat which due to the virus is not an option for now.
I've been self isolating since last March due to low immune system but im due for my anti virus jab so hopefully......
I like gardening reading and socialising. In my younger day i loved dancing ( jive my favourite) and cycling.
While i have plenty of friends I need contact with other istomates. I believe in talking about things and not bottling it up. I look forward to the contact with you all.
