I have had my colostomy since October of 2014 due to colorectal cancer...I was stunned from the diagnosis because I have always taken care of myself..try to eat right..exercise...etc....I just had a colonoscopy 3 years before so I thought I was doing everything right but as we know...sometimes it just happens. I am adjusting still but I, like most of us, have a love/hate relationship with my colostomy...having said that I'm VERY grateful to be here and I do well with it...I'm hoping to meet other people that have had a similar maybe get and to share some other experiences and tips for living life with this modification...looking forward to being a part of this group!
