We noticed there seem to be some youngish adults tossing around the surgery idea, so we are trying to gather images of others stomas and scars from the jpouch surgery that may be more gender and/or age closer to those considering this. Ashley had her surgery at 21, and her is a photo fo her little loop ileostomy and her leftover scars.
Ironically, it was single handledly Ashely's photos that triggered our desire to want to document the surgery which has now become our blog. When we saw her 12 photos, we wanted more information about everything she went through. We showed her photos to our family, friends and it was so helpful for us to visualize the future.
