Hi! I'm Jodie, my loop ileostomy began 7/14/22 at same time as my abdominal colectomy. It took 7 ostomy systems before we found one my skin would accept.
I had a reversal November 2022. Had complications after developing a ileus and earned extra time in the hospital. We'll see how it goes, I guess.
Looking to get to know new friends “who get it”. I'm married with a couple kids and in the process of adopting. My rescue dogs have been a great therapy for me after all the surgeries and recoveries.
Also, looking for ideas for remote work as I have my ups/downs recovering from surgeries and trying to regain energy. I started a personal blog on Instagram (@crappycolondiaries) as a way for me to process my journey and connect with others.
