I'm the older sis to an ostomy user! Trying to help gather all the information I can for her. She had the procedure about 2 years ago and has lost about 100 lbs since. Most days are heart breakingly frustrating for her .. up until just a few weeks ago she fought with just trying to keep a bag on for a one day!
Now sadly after losing more weight she is keeping one on a few days at a time...everything she eats seems to affect her ostomy.

Looking for support in my ongoing efforts to help educate myself and younger sister (42) who is the actual ostomy user.

Her ostomy is the direct result of chemo and radiation damage to her colon.

She has survived breast cancer for 12 years with it recently becoming metastatic (bone).
Keeping the bag on and eating enough to stop weight loss is our daily goal!
