Just wanted to thank everyone here who has posted helpful information. I've been visiting the site since July when I had my colon removed because of cancer and an illostomy in it's place. I was way behind the curve with how to apply the wafer and pouch, how long it stays on, would I be able to wear normal clothes again and found all the answers on this website. Oh forgot some of the answers for dealing with CHEMO which I will be doing for the next five months and that's fun all in itself with which side effects will I have this time and which ones I won't. Well I just figured it was time to become a member because this is my life now and there is not a single thing wrong with it because bottom line I'm still alive and kicking so once again I thank you all for your years of experience and helping me come up to speed with it.
