Dating personals for people with ostomy
I know I would be unsure of myself in the situation of having to tell a potential partner about this part of me that’s different.I won’t pretend that I know what it feels like to be rejected by a romantic partner because of my ostomy; I know that would hurt so much and would make the idea of putting yourself out there again much more difficult.I think he is a good man and an honest man who takes his vows seriously.When he said, “in sickness and in health,” he meant it. I know dating is not easy, especially when you throw an ostomy into the mix.To me, it just shows they are a shallow person whose intimacy is only skin deep and that’s not the kind of person I would want to spend the rest of my life with. He’s been through a lot with me, driving me back and forth to the hospital dozens of times, spending hours sitting in surgical waiting rooms.I feel very grateful that I found someone who loves me the way that he does.If someone goes running because of an ostomy bag, then you know what? “for better or for worse, in sickness and in health” mean jack shit to this person.
Of course I am very grateful for my husband and all that he has done for me.The consistency of your bowel movements from your ostomy will depend on the part of your intestine that’s used to create the ostomy.Your bowel movements may be liquid, soft, or solid.Your stoma will be swollen right after surgery, but the size will decrease in 6 to 8 weeks.You won’t feel any pain or pressure within your stoma.
