Do you use a belt for your bag? My husband had one for awhile (Crohns--he had an ostomy for about 18 months, it was reversed last January) and he had a StealthBelt, it seemed to make things a bit more comfortable. I understand yours being permanent is a different situation.

I am sorry it sounds like you are having a hard time. I was diagnosed with stage II colon cancer at age 37 (yes, our children have hit the lottery on bad family history on colons) but that was almost 6 years ago and thankfully I am fine now. I know the feeling of worry but in no way anywhere near the worry you must feel and all I can say is I hope that you are soon able to live your life with relative normalcy.

Can you describe what the colonoscopies were like without being knocked out? I have had three now (I would have one yearly if they would let me, I don't mind the prep). It seems like it would be interesting/scary/weird all at once, especially if they real-time explain what is going on in there instead of being silent or ignoring that you are awake.

Who was your favorite to work with on Six Feet Under? It remains one of my favorite shows and I thought you were great in it. I also loved Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead, I need to introduce my children to it so they understand what "Right on top of that, Rose" means!

This is what is scary for me. 2 minutes per transaction at Costco is risky, but in my school building, which is 100 years old, the circulation is terrible. They took away all of our fans. We are allowed to prop the door and open windows (unlike the last 10 years or so due to school shooter concerns) but we are still in class with kids for 50 minutes, and they are allowed to take off their mask if they are seated and distanced.

Man I had forgotten a lot of this...I am 4 years out from FOLFOX and I couldn't even stand in front of the freezer for a long time. I hope you are doing well now. (Diagnosed stage 2 at 37 years old, had emergency surgery for a blockage)
