Not sure what to expect. I am 66 years old I have had an ileostomy for 20+years.I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease when I was 21, but was told I have had since I was 7 years old. I have had it moved from my lower right side to my upper left side. I have had many surgeries and problems with it. At this time my problems with it are minimal. But I really still hate it. I am a widow. My husband passed away unexpectedly 8 years ago after a motorcycle accident. I am just looking for a person to talk with and discuss issues around having a ileostomy. Most people don't understand the problems we deal with on a daily basis.
