Talk to others with an Ostomy


I am 36 years old and had an ileostomy reversal 20 years ago when I was just a child. My appendix had burst and when the surgery was done to take it out my small intestine was cut accidentally by a med student playing doctor. I have been living a very lonely life with nobody around who can understand the complications or issues that come with this. I have 2 children but even though they love me unconditionally there is only so much I want to talk to them about when it comes to my personal life.
