So it's coming up on my one year since my surgery. Lost the colon, got the bag. Told it might be temp at first, but looks like the bag and i could be hanging around for a while.
 
Just curious if anyone actually does special on the day they received their " gift".  (sigh)
 
I know my colon must be somewhere. I'd like to send it a card......." thanks for nothing".

I have a party for my stoma's birthday every year on a chat site I help run - how can I not appreciate something that gave me my life back?
I have had an ileostomy for 31 years now due to UC.

I got my stoma on my surgeon's birthday, so I gave her a card a year later thanking her! She still talks about how impressed she is that I remembered her birthday! How could I forget?!?

To my sick colon, wherever it may be, "Get well soon!"

On my 1st year anniversary in March this year I was expecting to be totally depressed and was dredding it. Instead I got completely bladdered and had the neighbours knocking on our door at 1am telling us to turn the music down! It was the best night I'd had in ages!!

I think thats my plan. Get completely smashed and go back to the hospital and ask who is holding my colon.

Maybe see if the bakery could make a cake in the shape of a colon??

Sit down and look over some numbers trying to figure out to what i am saving in not buying nearly the amount of TP i had to buy before colon surgery.

Yeh, I do celebrate every year during my anniversary month - July.  And have done so since 1984!!!  Even if I don't pull out the party hats and whistles, I do spend a lot on groceries during that month.  ANYthing and EVERYthing I want.  That's just my little hoorah!!  I'm beyond missing the parts that aren't there anymore - all they did was cause me pain.  I'm pretty much pain-free, with a few episodes here and there, and can enjoy each day.
