My Pouch Covers

Mon May 17, 2010 9:34 pm
"This is the best website for people with an Ostomy, hands down. So much understanding. Everyone should join."
The idea behind C&S Ostomy Pouch Covers was developed for me over 30 years ago. Here is my story.

At the age of 17, I was diagnosed with Chrons disease and endured the pain and heartbreak of slowly losing my large intestine. When I was 19, I underwent my first surgery and wound up with an ielostomy. I was devastated and thought that my life was over. My self confidence was non-existent. The thought of having a meaningful relationship or raising a family never entered my mind. However, there was one person in my life who was not going to let me travel down the road of despair and self-pity.....my grandmother. Grandma was determined to make me feel good about myself and my ostomy bag.
Grandma knew that there had to be a way to make the bag look more appealing, so she consulted with a woman who did alterations for her. The two of them came up with the first version of the pouch cover. I was thrilled with the idea and began to feel less self-conscious! Since then I have made many design changes and variations of the cover for my own use. My favorites were the one with bows and lace on it for my wedding day, and the baby blue one for the day my son was born.
For many years friends and family members have encouraged me to share my designs with other people in my situation. Now you, too, can convey fashion, confidence and self assurance while concealing the appearance of the collection bag. This is the reason C&S Ostomy Pouch Covers Inc. was founded.
I hope you will take some time to browse my web site. I believe that once you have tried one you will understand the benefits and wear it for a lifetime like I have.

Lexi-
I see that you had a BCIR for a while, then went back to the ostomy. I have a BCIR. Would you mind telling me why you went back to the ostomy?
Thanks,
Leann

Hi, I know you are new and we are here for you, but you sent us all emails asking for our personal emails at home.  We mostly have children and families who use our computers also and we dont want them knowing everything we say about our bags, etc.  I am not being mean, but this board has a site to use email and it has a chat line or prvate chat, we just dont want to get our families involved with our personal issues and the friends we do our best to work with and learn from each other.  This really is a perfect site for sending an email and you dont need anything private from any of us.  We are all here if you need to ask a question, but a lot of us our in our 40's or our 50's with families, we arent 20 any more, maybe a few but not many.  I hope you stay and learn to use the board as I have learned so much on here and so will you.  But Privacy is important to me and I dont know how others feel but I have a twelve year old son who gets on our email and no way does he need to read about my Ostomy, it already has him worried.  God Bless You or whatever your Faith may be, If you need any of us we usually are here to talk or see a message someone left and we respond with kindness, Take care of you and thank you for respecting the Privacy of us on this board who has protected us.  JG or Jenny

I think you have me mixed up with someone  else I have not emailed you  or asked for your personal email info .. I agree with you and I don't give out personal info on the INTERNET about myself .. Hope you find out who sent you the emails

Lexi, that email was not for you, a girl from another country who was young sent out emails wanting personal ones and I probably still have a copy of who it was.  I just didnt want to use her name on this site.  But she wrote something on the site and that is why I said what I did, sorry you didnt understand, I know you would never do that.  Thanks for letting me know that you thought it was you, the last thing i would ever do is hurt someone innocent, life is hard enough without making trouble, but if you want a copy of my email from this girl, I know it is not deleted and then you will know who I am talking about, so very sorry, been one of those days here, God Bless, Love Jenny
