I have been lucky to not have a resection left, but I do have the poopy problem. It is hard for me being so young because it is embarrasing. I have a change of clothes at work and in my car. I also have a few extra underwear (I know TMI). It just makes me feel better to know that if I don't make it in time, I have options. I am a teacher, so it is hard to get away sometimes. I am overweight, but I certainly have buns of steel HeHeHe. I also wear black or brown pants everyday. If it is a really bad day, I also wear a sanitary pad. I hope this helps. Good Luck.
been there done that. Actually still there. hope someday they will find some thing for us to control the crap. I remember one time when i first met my wife. we were dating for about 4 months. We were driving and i kinda crapped the old pants while we were driving. Lucky i had some clean clothes with me. we were about a half mile from a rest area. i asked while i was runnig to the rest room to bring my bag in. and of course she did. the wife is a nurse so she understood. still does after 6 yrs. I use t/p instead of depends. works for me. and i am not the kinda guy to that uses depends. another thing i use in bed is a blue accident (chuck) the call them in the hospital. i put a towel on top of it because it makes me sweat. Yes it is really hard at time emotionally. It is just part of this darn disease. I at times use immodium it does help believe me
Cohlon removed in 02,
Remicade every 2 months. Life saver for me.
I feel your pain too, its been happening to me now for months and still happening. I've been in the middle of shopping, walks to the beach with my b/f, driving in the car and anywhere else you can imagine and now im so scared to go out anywhere. It sure does mess with your emotional state, i know it has with me. I am also on morphine for pain relief which should be blocking me up if anything but its not. You are in my thoughts and I agree with all the other suggestions, I do wear sanitary napkins every time I go out somewhere now, which is not great but its the better option. Take care and I hope you feel better soon.
