It revealed that I had cancer and I was sent to surgeon. The cancer was located close to the rectum, so the surgeon removed it, closed up my rectum and gave me an ostomy. The ET nurse was very good and fitted me with a two piece Hollister system, which I use to this day. She showed me how to clean and measure the stoma and how to apply the two piece system. I play tennis doubles and lead a fairly active life. I change my system every Sunday morning.
