Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,170 members


I retired from the US Postal Service 11 years ago. Before that I was an enlisted member of the US Army for 9 years. I enjoy walking/running and watching movies and TV shows about food,discoveries,medicine,etc. My longest running hobby ia genealogy including DNA-based researching.

I had my ilieostomy done in June,2010. I almost died when my Ulcerative colitis, which I'd had since 1978, came back from remission with a vengance. Having had bariactic surgery makes for many complications now. I'd like to find someone else in my position for friendship and advice. I have not met another ostamate and would like to get to know one.
