Anything I should do or try to make it easier for any future girlfriend/wife? What are you stories of your spouse with Medical issues? Any general advise?
Thank you for reading!
I advise you to be up front and honest from the get go. You may get alot of snub nosed women but you will find one who will see past all your issues and care about you for the wonderful person you are. Your a strong man. Never forget that. You have been through so much and are still alive and kicking. Please stick around and even join social if you want.

Be upfront and honest, so you don't waste your time with a woman who can't handle it.
I also want to say that my husband does not have any medical issues, so I didn't vote on the poll, but I do have a few medical issues myself. It's not something you say on the first date, but I'd mention it within the first 4 dates to see if they can handle it.
Some background info. on myself: I was born with a lymphatic malformation and have been through more surgeries than I can remember(lost count), with my latest surgery being 3 years ago. I very well may need more surgeries in the future depending on how my body reacts to infections and what not, that can cause swelling and growth. I also have a few other issues as well, but won't go into detail. I am somewhat of a medical disaster, as I like to jokingly say about myself.
I will be honest and say that there have been guys who dumped me as soon as they found out I had medical issues, but it was their loss
, not mine. I am glad that they left as it's better to have someone who is strong enough to stand by your side through everything, than someone who is afraid to be there.
I told my husband on our third date about my medical issues. He didn't know much about what my medical issues were, so we talked about it and I told him what I knew about it in a simplistic way. It never bothered him and he said he wanted to continue dating me. On the next date, I borrowed his phone to look something up and noticed he had looked up more info on my medical issues. I was overwhelmed by emotions that he cared enough to do that. My husband is amazing and I do believe there is someone out there for everyone.
Just do things you enjoy in coed groups, not looking specifically for a date, but if someone catches your interest then you can make a move. You can do volunteer work or take a few classes in something that interest you. Do things you enjoy and you can meet others who share that same interest. I met my husband in college as we both were in the same social club.
