About
1. I have a UROSTOMY that was inserted due to aggressive radiation treatment for cancer, which ultimately caused significant nerve damage to a perfectly healthy non-cancerous bladder (since May 2015). The UROSTOMY will be surgically repaired to fix my recessed stoma that causes constant inflammation, pain, and infections (surgery in January 2022).

2. I will ALSO have a COLOSTOMY inserted due to aggressive radiation treatment for cancer, which ultimately caused significant nerve damage and radiation proctitis to a perfectly healthy non-cancerous colon (January 2022).

3. I'm hoping to interact with others who have both a UROSTOMY & COLOSTOMY, in order to learn strategies for navigating a quality life while wearing two sets of appliances (i.e maintenance, travel, diet, recreational activities, social interactions, and any other issues that may occur due to having 2 different ostomys).
