Hi, my name is Dave or David

Thanks for stopping by to page. I joined this site two make friends with people who are in a similar situation to me or have already gone through with the operations to have an ostomy. I myself have not gone for the surgery yet, but I have my consultation for surgery coming up very soon. This is a huge step for me in a major lifestyle change. So I hope that one here at least I'll be able to find people who can relate and understand the situation or at least if by some miracle someone can sit there and say that it's not issue and they potentially know what it could be because my symptoms may vary differently. Objective here not to give up hope make a lot of friends and if you find someone that you like see where it goes. The one thing we all must learn is that life goes on and that we have to make adjustments in order to make it better for ourselves. So please stop by and drop a line and say hi if you like what you see or if you want to get to know how or why my situation is with the way it is definitely DM.

To sum up how I got here and to keep it brief I was never diagnosed with any illnesses but mine's was brought on by food poisoning or a fall that engine my hip that is gone long and diagnose for 2 years is been constantly called IBS when it's not IBS. So if you're one of the people can relate or person who has gone through with the operation it is very knowledgeable in the adjustments, what's next and what to expect please do DM thank you
