42-year -old working mother of three, who’s had an ileostomy since 1999. My surgery was for Crohn’s disease. Thanks to surgery and making some serious dietary changes (bye bye wheat), I’ve been doing really well on the Crohn’s front.
While I’m no fashion plate, I like to look polished and professional. My ileostomy is placed unusually high (yes, there are reasons associated with that…but it’s still a drag) so it is at or above most waistbands. Slowly over time, and from trial and error, I’m more accustomed to what clothes work on me. But, it’s still a challenge!
