Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,338 members


I'm a pretty active person and especially enjoy downhill skiing and travel. I also love music, dance and books and am always looking for the next adventure. In October '11 I had an emergency colostomy, and a successful reversal in January '12. There is no support group in my city so I am here for friendship, encouragement and advice. Hopefully I can provide that to others as well. I am a nurse, but am not currently practicing (too many health problems this year). Having gone through this very difficult time and the continuing recovery has been challenging, but I think I am a better person for it. Certainly there are things I "get" now because I have been there.
