Bernie’s Story

Hi, my name is Bernadette, I am 73 years old. I have had an ileostomy for about 8 years. If you have had an ileostomy or colostomy, it is an adjustment…it gets easier and your life will be ok. I swim, I travel, I work in my garden, I do everything I always did… exception I do not have to worry about my ulcerative colitis acting up unexpectedly…

I know everyone worries about accidents and smells, I always have extra ostomy supplies and Na’scent with me, and in the beginning of this process I brought a change of clothes that I kept in the car, just in case.

I am so grateful for Na’scent because it is a life saver, it really works. Other products I have tried do not work as well. If you are new to your ostomy situation or you have your ostomy for a longer period of time remember this, You are stronger than you think and you are braver than you know… and you are going to be ok, your friends and family love you, life is good with an ostomy.

Have some Fun!

Always Bernie
