I finally decided to introduce myself! I have been on this site for 8months following along on all the great info!

I am an ovarian cancer survivor for 11yrs(since I was 30yrs) In 2017 I got a colostomy because my tumours decided to invade my sigmoid. Lucky for me this was not my first surgery. It was my 4th... pre 2107 I had a tonne of blockages ... yeah NG Tubes, Chemo for 6months and very little organs left..  Besides my wonderful long relationship with cancer and now this colostomy I am married to a kick ass husband who has seen me through thick and thin many times. We have 3 cats who are my babies. I love concerts and travel! I also live on the east coast in NB and work in the technology field 😄

Recently my cancer has returned so heading back into surgery again soon. I am going to post a topic on what’s happening, so I may get some advice from the pros! 

I am looking forward to chatting with everyone!

Welcome to you LilKermit,

I am happy you decided to join the chorus here and share what you know and ask question if you don't.

I hope your upcoming surgery goes well. And it is so great you have a supporting partner! I too am very lucky in that area. We will all be pulling for a quick recovery.
