One of the most difficult adjustments I had to make after my first colon cancer surgery in 2011 was having to wear an ostomy bag. Fortunately, I only had to wear one for six months. Today I was reminded of that experience when I found this video of a young woman demonstrating how to change a bag. I thought to myself, “If only I had seen that video back when I was going through the experience.” I share it here now in the event you or someone you care about is facing the challenge. If you were or are a caregiver of someone going through this, I think you will find a new appreciation for what has to be done at least twice a week depending on the type of bag worn.
