I am and have been a very active and healthy person my entire life. I was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2008 and have recently been told that I may have to have a colostomy in the next few weeks. I am very nervous and worried about this will change my life. I am a very strong person, but the doctors have warned me that this is truly a life changing experience. At first I was like "lets just do this and get it over with" now I am researching and trying to get mentally and emotionally prepared.
