7 year Stomaversary!


7 years ago today, my life changed forever... I realize now that I probably wouldn't be here today without the lifesaving surgery I had on November 16th, 2012! It's been a long road filled with plenty of setbacks and challenges. But I have learned to live with and accept my ostomy, move forward, and be happy and grateful to be alive. Even though my life has changed, I still try to enjoy it just as much as I did before my surgery. I know a lot of my family and friends will never truly understand what it's like living with an ostomy, but it's nice to know that I have a community full of people like all of you who do. I hope you are all doing well and that you are feeling just as blessed today and every day to be alive because of your lifesaving ostomy surgery!

Happy Stomaversary I feel the same way.
And from me: I wish you many more of them, because life is GOOD! (Especially when you consider the alternative LOL!)
Loved your post. I am writing this from my cabin while on a cruise. It is fabulous to travel with really no worries at all since 11.10.2015 for me.
Happy Stomaversary!
Thank you everyone for your kind words and well wishes! You made my day!
