Im a recent colostomate. I had a date for elective surgery to remove the sigmoid colon diseased with diverticulosis. after several attacks within months of one another, i was out of town when i was struck with an attack that ruptured the colon. I was in new jersey for a week.....4 hours from home. Needless to say a colostomy appears on my abdomen with a belly full of staples. I went to my first ostomy meeting last night and felt very out of place as i was definitely the rookie in the room without a spouse or s/o for support. My sister, who has survived breast cancer strongly suggested that i use the net as support. so.....here i am! Hoping to problem solve personal issues as well as physical and emotional.
