When I found out that I had to have my colon removed and have an ostomy for the next 10-12 months because of my life threatening ulcerative colitis, there were many thoughts that ran through my mind.
What was my daily life going to be like? Are people going to look at me differently because of my pouch?
Honestly, one of my biggest preparations and thought processes had to do with what I was going to wear when I had my pouch. I knew that I was going to have to adjust my fashion style and wear items of clothing that were not only comfortable but made me feel confident.
