StomaGear - StomaShield Stoma Guard

Life with an Ostomy Blog

When you are 33 years old and the GI doctor says you need to have your whole colon removed, your perspective on life, and many other things, changes.  My mind wanders, trying to imagine all the implications of this surgery.  Wait, the doctor just said something about an ileostomy bag.  What is an ostomy?  What does this mean and how will it affect my life and my future? 


I love the letters and emails I get from customers who finally feel like they can do what they've been wanting to do.  Playing golf, playing with their child or grandkid, working in the garden, going back to work, playing sports, riding a horse, going on a roller coaster, taking a long road trip, first plane ride since ostomy surgery, etc just to name a few examples.  The StomaShield stoma guard not only protects the stoma, it gives people CONFIDENCE!  Trust me, I know how nerve wracking it can be to live with an ostomy.  I've had an ileostomy since 2009, that's over 9 years.  That's why I made a better stoma guard.  To give me confidence, originally.  Then started making it for others back in 2013.  What a ride it's been since then!
