Just found this site and am glad of it.  I have had a colostomy for 7 1/2 years.
One source of great information is from a magazine called "The Phoenix".  It
is the official publication of the United Ostomy Association of America and
contains much useful information on support groups, products, patient problems,
travel tips, etc.  Try www.uoaa.org.
