I don't have a question, I have 2 ostomies yes that's right 2 I'm just lucky that way
and I have had my urostomy for 5 yrs and my colostomy for 4 yrs now and everything that could go wrong did so if anyone wants to talk about it or ask questions I will be very happy to be there. I have had to learn most everything on my own kinda like on the job training, most of the battle is a sense of humor good luck and i am so glad MedHelp added this take care, marlene

It's great that you are here to help others. There are several others who live with two pouches who post on the discussion board of the UOAA. You can see that at this link: http://www.uoaa.org/forum/index.php (and look for the "General" title). You can read as much as you want without registering, and search too, but need to register in order to post your own question ... just like here.
please tell me how you deal with that emotional because my 10 year old daughter will be getting a colostomy due to imperforate anus birth defect. I worry so much on how she will even be able to handle this for the rest og her life.
