Wow, what an ordeal you've been through! I'm so glad you're feeling better and found this site. Once you get the hang of the whole wafer changing procedure, you'll be able to slap on a fresh one in 2 minutes flat, even with one hand tied behind your back! hehehe
I also have a husband who's been kind and supportive through my years of illness and subsequent surgeries, which I am very thankful for. Since you're new to all of this, please ask us any questions you may have, and we'll do our best to answer.
Dx'd Crohn's in '99 at 28. Proctocolectomy and ileostomy in '06.
Disease-free, medicine-free, and very thankful to be healthy again :)
