Join the Largest Ostomy Community


I received my surprise Ileostomy Feb9 2021. I took awhile to adjust but I believe I am finally there. I am looking for friends, knowledge, and have the opportunity to feel differently and more understood as only we can provide one another.
I am a 48 years old, single female. I have 2 young adult children both out of the home. I have a beautiful grandson almost 3 years old. I have much to live for and I hope to find the good from this situation I find myself in. I feel fortunate to find this site and others who have shared the same experiences. X
