I am a 52 yr. old happily married mother of 3 grown sons, none married, & 3 grown stepchildren, all 3 married with 1 child apiece. I love to read, sing, cook, ride horses & motorcycles, & I love my dog.

I currently work as a secretary 12 hours a week for my church. I was an RN for 15 years, went out with back problems (eventually surgery) 12 years ago, & have been on disability since then. I have Crohn's Disease, and I have to make a decision soon about having the ostomy surgery, hopefully temporary, which I am resisting. I am simply trying to find out good- and bad- experiences people have had with ostomies, & how it has affected their lives.
