Today marked my first ostomy support group with the Ostomy Support Group of Central Indiana. While I was a bit hesitant to go, I couldn’t wait to meet more people in my area and in my age group that I would have something in common with. Unfortunately, I was a bit mistaken, but had a wonderful time anyway.
Getting more comfortable with my own colostomy and being connected to related online groups, I have started to see many questions for potential patient on what they’ll deal with after colostomy surgery. I wanted to take some time and relate what you can expect along with helpful tips and mistakes that I made through my recovery process.
