This is the first discussion I have seen just for people with ostomies. Even though I am an adult (so I guess I don't qualify to be a Gastronaut) I feel the need to be able to reach out to others who truly understand what we live with, day to day. I have had my colostomy just over a year and even now it will hit me out of nowhere, I have to live with this for the rest of my life!! I still have problems handling it emotionally and physically, so it would be great to be able to ask questions from "veterans" for advice and useful tips.
