I try to remain very upbeat and deal with the issues as they arise. We love to travel but have found it very difficult to get out of town for any length of time because of my numerous doctor appointments.

Looking for people to talk to about issues that arise from having a colostomy. I have had mine since March '08 due to anal cancer. It is permanent. I have had 2 hernia surgeries, 2 stoma revisions, and 1 blockage. I am currently waiting for the doctor to decide if he is going to relocate my stoma. It has been a constant roller coaster since my cancer diagnosis.
