My name is Preshia I'm 36 year old caucasian female. I was diagnosed with stage 3 cervical cancer in Dec 2018. I started chemo and external radiation. After that round they decided to do a brakenytherapy internal radiation. I'm only 110lbs ands so that about of radiation really affected my body, not to mention a piece of radioactive gauze was left inside me for 4 months. I developed 2 fistulas within 6 months I was told I had no other options than a colostomy. I was devastated. 2 years later I'm finally becoming somewhat comfortable with my stoma ( I've named her stella the stoma lol) I've finally came to terms with the fact this is something I'm going to have to live with and it's not going away.I feel completely alone pulling away from all family and friends. I'm in a deep depression and would love to chat with someone that understands!
