I am a 44year old mother of 5, 3 girls and 2 boys. I am a stage 4 cervical cancer survivor, and now my battle is stage 2 colon cancer. I just had surgery 05/25/2022 and have a colostomy, and hope to get reverse ostomy in near future. I don't usually go online and discuss anything, especially something that I am going through. I am looking to hear others experience with their ostomy life, struggles, and mental state after such a unexpected life changing procedure and how they got through it, and hopefully some social support. :)
