Don't sell yourself short. Though, I have about 15 years to go, 62 is not old. It depends on how you decide to live your life.

Gavobe,

I am younger (31yrs old) and I also found it hard to be comfortable with my boyfriend when I had my ileostomy.  For the first little while I felt more comfortable wearing a tank top while being intimate so that I was not worried about the bag. It sounds like you are a very strong man who has survived a lot!  Good luck!
