Photos: Your Story
We’ve been noticing that on our blog that visitors to the site are identifying with the surgery photos of Mark, Carter, Ashley – In other words, people are seeing people and stories they are familiar with. Now, we want you to share your story and photo journey with others. Similiar to Carters photo journey and story , we are asking for you to share whatever you think might help someone else!
We are hoping to show, but not limited to:
1) Female perspective in general. Also, we’d love to have someone share their fertility and jpouch story. I know for women the fertility is concern when making the “elective” surgery decision.
Other perspectives from the female angle are body image issues, not to say men aren’t body image concerned, but with women it may be different?
2) Delayed surgeries, surgeries with complications, surgeries without complications. Perm ileo stories, strictures, fistulas, etc….
3) We didn’t document the pre-surgery journey and we’d like to show that part to others. Pre-surgery as in the tests done before the surgery and the time frame of those. The night before prep, backing of bag, family settling, etc…..
4) And these are only a few ideas, so share yours. As you can tell on this site anything goes as long as it benefits your healing, and the future healing of others!
If you are interested, please email Mark and Megan at firstname.lastname@example.org
