    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    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? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    I'll be gone for awhile -

    Last Wed. and Sat. I ended up in the ER with my ileostomy prolapsing, they pushed it back in, and I had to be admitted for 24hrs to be watched.

    Was told to see my surgeon today. She took one look at my stoma and called the hospital to get me in tomorrow for emergency surgery.

    I do not know how long I will be gone - just thought I'd let you know cause I will not be posting. Debbie
