Your courage is amazing. I am nervous about undergoing an operation for multiple hernias and ostomy relocation due to painful blockages. I am told they may have to give me a higher stoma (above the belt) and I believe I will have another hanging piece of belly which often happens after a stoma is moved from what I know. I have great fatigue and diabetes and no veins to take blood from in my arms. I have pain in my wrists and elbows from previous failed "pokes" from trying to put in an IV. Being 70 and without family support (never married) does not help and I often wish I could just pass in my sleep. This is why I remain in amazement at survivors like yourself who manage to go on constructively in a world that seems to care only cares about its own problems. I recently lost a friend of mine to heart failure who gave it all away and wanted even on his last leg to march in a "Focus Hope" parade which he never missed. He donated his body to a medical school and had almost 400 of many he knew and helped turned up to his memorial. He had a life worth celebrating.
boy, know how u feel with little no no support/ in a similar situation
hang in there
çocuk, u benzer bir durumda / küçük hiçbir hiçbir desteği ile nasıl hissettiğimi biliyorum
thank you for your heartfelt support Susan. Surgery is scheduled at the end of this month. Since I originally planned it I am having back problems from on going osteoporosis but I feel I have to give this a shot no matter what happens as my body is suffering from lack of sleep due to the twenty four hour pains. Hope I am not jumping from the frying pan into the fire. Wish I could at least post an e-mail. Ron
