Hi, 

not that my sexuality defines me - but are there any gay ostomates on this site? There is a severe lack of information and/or support it seems. Would be good to chat having had a permanent end colostomy following cancer surgery last year.

Hello Jamie.

There was a post on this subject previously which might be helpful to you. It can be found in the 'collections' under  'general' items and was posted under the title :
Young Gay Guy With Ostomy Scared Of Future
posted by Crohnsguy84.

I hope this is helpful.

Best wishes

Bill

Morning Jamie.  Tom here turning 66 this next month.  I am a gay man and have had my ileostomy since age 19.   Glad to see you had a couple posts but disappointed in that being all. 

Do feel free to communicate with me anytime   I am not on this site often but should get info when you respond.  Sad there is not a gay ostimate site. As yourself I've not located one since way back in the 80s.

Hope this finds you well and learning about this new phase of your life.  Hugs.  Tom

Hi Jamie,

i’m Graham. I live in the Glasgow area and i’m bi.

There used to be a Gay Ostomates site but I think it shut down a couple of years ago.

 

I’d be happy to chat to you if you’d like.

 

Cheers.

Hi Tom, 

Many thanks for your message. I'm still navigating my way around this site and guess I need to become a paid-up member in order to message anyone privately. 

Encouraging to get some responses so quickly, so thank you for that!

Unsure where to begin really as am pretty private but have faced a huge change (as we all have I know) - will get my subscription sorted and be in touch!

sincerely

Jamie x

Speaking, a gay ostomate.  I had my surgery 41 years ago - way back then I was 18.

If you have any questions, ask.  My life has been full and good.

Good msg.

 

Ostomate since 1976, I was 18 way back then.

I am an ostomy nurse-PhD student...

My dissertation is titled "The experiences of Gay men living with an intestinal ostomy"

I am looking to interview 10-12 persons. 

Does anyone have any advice as to where I might recruit for the interviews. I am currently writing my proposal and must include this information. 

Thank you in advance, Respectfully...
