Hi everyone, I just wanted to say hi. This is my first time here and I am looking forward to chatting with others about the ostomy world.

I have ulcerative colitis. I had my first surgery in '01 and got a temperary illeostomy. My doctors decided that I couldn't get a reversal so I got another operation in '07. In October of this year I am going in again for the final surgery. I am nervous about it but also very anxious to get this over with.
