Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,177 members


I was diagnosed with rectal cancer in Feb. of 2010. I did radiation/chemo then had surgery to remove tumor and rectum in June. I'm working here in sunny Kuwait doing 28 days on, 28 days off. I am a happy, positive person, who enjoys the outdoors, motorcycles and old cars.

I'm waiting for April 2013 as my Oncologist told me 3 years was the magic number for rectal/colon cancer. So far so good!

I am very active and I haven't let my colostomy slow me down at all. I do concerts, go camping, fishing, motorcycle riding in fact I haven't found anything that I did before my colostomy that I can't do now.

I'm looking for a friend, some one to talk to, be it txt, messenger, phone or in person. Someone to share life experiences with, you know the good, the bad and the ugly.
