I'm a care worker and an Artist. I have 3 grown up children and 3 grandchildren. I live alone.
I had an ileostomy operation in August and it is still giving me issues as it is a very high out put stoma. During the operation and after I had some kidney damage which is still causing some trouble. I have not been able to return to work yet as Dr's and I have not yet managed to slow down the stoma out put. Getting very frustrated and anxious about my situation now as I can't go far because my stoma bag fills up all the time. Well I was very active before operation and hope to be so again one day. Hello to you all.
