I am a 50 year old Colorectal Cancer survivor with a permanent colostomy. I live in the Gainesville area of Florida and am married to a wonderful woman, she was the G.I. nurse I had after my first surgery when I was given an ileostomy, I had that for a couple of years, had a follow up surgery, was hooked back up, lived colostomy free for a year or so, it was really rough and painful so I had to get a permanent colostomy.

I deal with the usual, stomach pain, cramps, fatigue, etc. on and off and was just looking for others with similar issues that have advice or are looking for advice. I am also a musician, play guitar and sing, so if there is anyone in the local area and is also a musician, that would be great too.
