I love you God.
It will be ok :) u learn to become creative when you get a stoma :) It doesnt hurt and if you have pain and can't eat ohh that will change. You will finally get some relief. most the time you forget you have a bag on and the times you do notice it, it feels like a balloon hooked to your side..lol I hope everything goes as smooth as possible for you and your family.
