Stomaversary

This is a great community. Consider joining.

Well, my stomaversary was yesterday and didn't even think about it! Lol The past three years seem like a lifetime.  I am forgetting what it was like before surgery, before wearing a pouch. Never thought I would forget that! 
Guess I have accepted all of this and think no more about pooping now than I did before. That is probably a good thing! 
Hope the following years are as carefree, they all haven't been I prefer to look on the bright side! There are always bad days or weeks but I feel lucky to have few of those. Not letting this rule me! 

Thanks to those that helped along the way!

These are the top 5 issues ostomates face:

1. Dating and relationships
2. Concealing the pouch
3. Foods to eat and avoid
4. Losing or gaining weight
5. Pouch ballooning

Thank you for sharing and it's encouraging 😊
