Talk to others with an Ostomy


I've had an ostomy bag for 8 months now, and I have been feeling tons of mixed emotions about it. I am getting a reversal at the end of this month. Although I won't have the bag attached to me anymore- I still feel that I will never be the same person. In my head my bag will always be there. I'm looking to meet other people who have gone through this, maybe other young people my age. I want to learn on how to cope with my new life.
