Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,170 members


I'm a retired older gentleman with a lot of time on my hands. Basically flying solo . I watch a lot of movies and like to explore new websites.

Reading is a favorite pastime, especially staying on top of a number of health topics. Born and raised in New York city but have lived in San Diego many years. Also would like to say I had ileostomy surgery in Jan 2011,due to complications of long term ulcerative colitis.

Had to have a proctocolectomy due to pre-cancerous cells in my transverse colon.Very unfortunate. I was in remission for twenty years.Bummer.

I'm interested in making friends and people to talk to especially recent ostomates. Honesty and sincerity are especially important along with an interesting personality.

I would like to share my thoughts and experiences since my recent surgery. Also would like to offer helpful suggestions if asked to do so.
