Add a body altering surgery, and the change in body image to the mix, and thinking about intimacy with an ostomy can almost feel uncomfortable.

That is a completely normal feeling, but with a little preparation, pep talk, and open communication, intimacy can still be a wonderful, fulfilling practice between partners.

I try not to take offense to someone losing interest after I share with them that I have an ostomy.Still, make sure to have open, honest conversation about your ostomy, how you and your partner feel about it, what things will be the same and what will be different after your ostomy surgery.Try to understand that your partner is adjusting too. I talked to a woman who asked her husband how he felt about her ostomy, expecting a negative reaction.Finding that person may take time, but you are so worthy and deserving of love and support.If you were already with a significant other before having surgery, he or she probably knows how sick you have been and will be thankful for life-changing surgery and for your health.
