My doctor told me that I would have reversal surgery and iliostomy would come off in a few years.
It’s been 42 years and I still have it.
Because of inflammation and colitis flare ups I was never able to get reversed.
Most of the time I forget I have it.
It’s become part of my life. I live every day to the fullest and don’t let it bother me at all.
I went on vacation last summer to Maui and snorkeled with sea turtles off the coast for several hours. I did this three days in a row.
I wish I did not have it, but I accept it and deal with it.
Enjoy life there’s lots to see and do.
