Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,168 members


I am somewhat of an introvert but like being around people. I am separated and I am sometimes shy.I have a sunny personality and always smile. Once I get to know people and people get to know me I can be a good friend.
I like to read (a lot) and do some sewing. I have a son who lives in California and is married and has a son of his own. I go to visit him once a year.And recently had some reservations about traveling with my ostomies, I was terribly worried about having an accident with my colonoscopy since I frequently had diahrrea since I was new to traveling with them. I would be gratefully appreciative if I could get some info about traveling on a plane and the frequency of diahrrea.

I expect to find out what others are doing about their Ostomies and how to cope with a double ostomy. I have many problems with my colonostomy and need to learn what to eat and what to stay away from.
