Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,171 members


I'm interested to see if others are having the same issues with daily activities, diet, pain management and self care of their ostomy. I recently had my large intestine, rectal removed. In 2007 I had my ileostomy surgery and have a pelvic floor dysfunction. I'm finally not spending my days in bed and working as a consultant for a state college. I'm researching alternative medicine and using other methods to cope with my pain.I have a website for these issues that is currently a work in progress.
