I'm 46 and until I had my operation 3 months ago was relatively healthy. I went into sugery expecting a simple lap with the belief that I was going to have a 2 to 3 week recovery time . Well that did not happen, and this has changed my life for better or worse. I have had 3 surgeries and 2 more to go, so I am told so far. I am supposed to have a reversal one day. But until then It is what it is, and life goes on. I have learned to become comfortable in my skin and to have a side kick,( ileostoMO.)

I'm looking to find tips,and helpful hints from others, who have similar issues.

I enjoy going to the movies, riding my motorcycle and spending time with my kids "sometimes".( LOL)
