BLOG post Archive

Postby CRguy » Thu Nov 20, 2014 10:59 pm

Many members have noted that the Archive list of ColonClub Blog posts does NOT link properly from the Blog homepage after the posts move off the current page.

Following up on the good work of our own O Stoma Mia who has collated most of the posts below, I have added a few others Belle dug up, so that members can NOW locate recent posts from this topic.

If anyone else has a link or information about a missing Blog post, please send me a PM.

Thank you very much. When I write, I think to myself, "I can't be the only person who feels this way!". Comments like yours help me validate my feelings.

Just an FYI for members here :

The Blog post links to most of the older Blogs have been fixed on the CClub Blog homepage ....
SO you should now be able to access many historical Blogs from either here or there.

Thank you to the "fixers" .... That archive is just TOO important for us to ever lose.

Cheers and Harmony

I thank everyone for their hard work, it is certainly a blessing to be able to read these posts. I thank you all for your courage for everything that you have gone through and your sharing. Maybe I will be able to articulate as well my story one day.

For me so far, having a permanent colostomy has been a challenge as I have not had the support from a ostomy nurse, so I have been left to my own devices to muddle through everything from constipation ... yeah believe it or not never had it in my life before this, one of my oncologists kindly giggled and said, well we both know that the chemo will cure that in a hurry ... yep not so cute. I also have psoriasis which has not reacted well to the Colostomy flange or glue or leaky stool, ugh! Anyone have any thoughts on that one??? And then of course I have a wonderful perineal wound that is refusing to heal or perhaps abate very slowly!

Then of course the products, what shall I use and I stick it with, dear liza dear liza ... lol one can only keep ones sense of humour day to day with the new experiences! So far I kinda like coloplast but they seem to be the most expensive ... Hollister seems to be the best at giving a generous amount of samples .... but again there is so much to know about so much. Also I have found that Shoppers Drug Mart has been the most expensive so I usually buy online at canmed or Costco!

Anyway, keep posting ya all as I think that this is going to be where I get me educated from!

Hugzzz to ya all Brenda

Thanks Jacques always good to keep the blogs in the "news" and current here on the forum !

Actually I also add a link to each new blog, when it is posted, to the bottom of the topic post above, here on the Ctalk forum.

Many notable members here have contributed but Leighann is a real trooper and has done many over the years
and always tells it like it is.

Best wishes to her
