    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Having lived with a colostomy bag for 90 days, I can tell you from experience how anything but pretty they are. But the colostomy bag is nothing compared to your intestine busting out of your abdomen. I was just happy to get rid of that sight, it's anything but natural.
