I go in tomorrow for my step 2 of 3 jpouch surgery. If you have spare good thoughts or prayers, send 'em my way, please! I think they will be relocating my stoms as well, to let this sore heal - in a way, I'll be glad for that. I can't believe it's here, the next step!
Now, I just need to get over my stomachache and headache from not eating! Clear liquids suck!

I am new to this...I had a colostomy due to colon cancer May 23.  I got to come home yesterday.  My husband, who is my biggest supprot, found you guys and thought that you would be the best medicines for me.  Bless You all!  I am sure that I will be grumbling some...and maybe asking you for help in coping.  There is one thing that I want you to know...I am a SECOND TIME SURVIVOR of CANCER!  The first time I was 29 years old, diagnosed with 4th stage OVAIRIAN CANCER...abd given6 months to live....that was 30 years ago!!!  When the doc operated on me this time for colon cancer, well....HE GOT IT ALL!  I am going to be ok !  So...NEVER GIVE UP!  And...try to Always be Happy, Grateful, appreciative, and thankful for everything in your life~!! yeah
