Talk to others with an Ostomy


I have had an ileostomy since 1972 (50yrs). I don't know anyone that has an ileostomy. I had my surgery when I was 17 years old and now am 67. I had many partial bowel obstructions through the years not requiring surgery. Several years ago I had a total bowel obstruction requiring surgery and I had a hernia they could not see in x-ray which caused all those partial obstructions. I am a nurse, was married and had 3 children. I'm single now and would love to speak with other ostomates.
