Marie, 67 years- ostomist
It was a shock when I found out that I have a tumor and I will have an ostomy. I wasn't even 50 years old. In 2002 I haven't access to the internet and I was missing some information. I didn't know anyone with an outlet. After the operation, changing the bags caused me a lot of problems. I couldn't stand the sight of my operated belly.
But ostomy saved my life and I have learned how to like her. I live thanks to the outlet. I am happy that I could meet my grandchildrens, I am enjoing childs world. My family takes me how I am. I reconsidered the priorities. I got to meet so many amazing people thanks to ostomy. I like myself, I am helping others, my life makes sense.
