Hello all,
 
I'm not new to this site but I have been away for a long time. I am a 29 year old single mother of two beautiful children. Elizabeth is 12 and Nicolas who just turned 2 today. I have an ileostomy and have had it for about 5 years now. Things have been going well with it. Actually most of the time I forget I'm different from everyone else because it's so normal to me now. I hope to make a few friends on here. It's nice to meet you all.

Hi Heather...I am new here as of yesterday. Had my colostomy since 2001. I know what you mean about having a new normal. That's a good thing to feel normal...our own normal. Have a good one and welcome back here. I was real happy to find this place.
Cancer Diagnosis  Jan 2001
Hysterectomy turned into colostomy on left side.
 
Feb 2002 
Takedown surgery turned into reconnecting to rectal stump but ended up with a temporary ostomy on right side.
 
Radiation therapy has caused too much scarring of the rectal area to allow for normal BM's. So temporary ostomy has become perm.
