I enjoy talking to people and helping those of us that have to wear a medical device. My ostoma is 5 1/2 years old. I was misdiagnosed for 9 month's and when i insisted on a biopsy i had stage 2 rectal cancer. For 9 months i had severe rectal pain and small amounts of blood in the rectum. 2 rounds of chemo and 28 radiation treatment's. The radiation treatments were in vain because the treatment's did not shrink the tumor and left me with rectal and bladder pain. I am alive and thankful however i hold distain for the Dr who misdiagnosed me for 9 months. Yes, i should of gotten a 2nd opinion but the Dr i was seeing had a excellent reputation.. I have 3 grown children and 7 grandchildren. My husband and i have been married for 49 years. I love to garden and decorate my home, read.
