I never thought my stoma would see it's first birthday, but here it is!
On Saturday, I graduated with my bachelors in nursing. I had to take a semester off because of my surgeries, but I finally finished. I could not have done it without stoma buddy. Despite having 4 total surgeries so far and countless NG tubes, I am so happy I got rid of my diseased colon. There is no way I would have been able to sit through my commencement ceremony with UC.
I having my j-pouch created on January 11th. I am having mixed feelings about it. This bag is really convenient. My end ileo is well behaved.
