Join the Largest Ostomy Community


Hi! I'm Jodie 😃
I had an abdominal colectomy and loop ileostomy July 2022. It took 7-8 ostomy systems before we found one my skin would accept.
I had a reversal November 2022 that came with some complications after developing an ileus and earned extra time in the hospital. But so far, the reversal itself is going well overall.

I enjoy meeting and making friends of different genders, from different backgrounds, races, ethnicities, countries, etc… I appreciate connecting with others who understand these chronic conditions because unless you've gone through something like this.

I'm married with a couple kids and in the process of adopting. My rescue dogs have been a great therapy for me after all the surgeries and recoveries.
If you have a dog in a picture- I've probably looked at your profile 😃

I started a personal blog on IG (@crappycolondiaries) as a way for me to process my journey and connect with others.
