I just checked out your site and I think it is absolutely GREAT!
I had ileostomy surgery in May. When I knew I was going to be having the surgery, I can't tell you how many times I googled all kinds of things about stomas, ileostomies, bags, etc. just to get a picture of what I would look like, what the stoma and bag look like, etc.--I had no clue what to expect....and there is hardly anything out there showing this!!!
Your site has exactly what I was looking for--pictures of a real young adult going through ileostomy surgery--with clear pics of the stoma, scars and bag...!
I think you are brave, and I am SURE you are helping many other young people who are facing surgery to know what to expect!! I would have loved to see your site before my surgery! Surgeons can tell me what to expect until they are blue in the face, but a picture is 100 times more real to me then any verbal description...
Also, glad to know you are healthy again!!!! Isn't is great?
