Looking for children with colostomy

Posted: Sun Feb 20, 2011 12:14 am
Hi, friends.  I have been enjoying the updated topics and reading through your posts and stories.  Though... I'm still looking for another family (families???) who have a boy born needing a permanent colostomy; or an adult male that was born needing a permanent colostomy... just to share stories that are similar and bounce questions/thoughts back and forth.  

Everyone's stories are so helpful knowing our challenges with bags/changing wafers, etc. And my heart rips when I read when some of our ostomy friends need prayers and special guidance ...  but I really want to meet someone who is also experiencing the challenges we have with our little guy (2 1/2 years old).

Anyone...?

Thanks, friends.

There are some excellent stories in Ostomy Australia for parents with children with ostomies.  I think you can download issues in PDF form on Google.

But if no-one is forthcoming on here Ryan's mom, have you tried the UOAA site (below link), I know there is a section on there for parents.  Good luck with finding some info, Ryan is beyond cute by the way!

Hi, friends.  Thanks for the info on ostomy kids in the UK.  I might have to link there just to even get online connections as I have found literally no one with a young boy in the same situation as Ryan in the United States.  I know there are families (through connections from our doctors)... we ask the doctor to offer our phone number so they can call and chat (or even e-mail!).  No one calls us.  Very private families, I guess.  I tried UOAA (I am a membre) but, again, they couldn't confirm if any family was like ours and I couldn't afford the membership fee just to join, yet, another online support group when there are so many free.

Thanks, again, friends!  I'll keep searching.  -Ryan's mom
