I finally did it...after 10+ years of Crohns, numerous surgeries, 3 strokes, a nation full of my soiled under wear, I did it. I phoned my Dr. and made an appointment to see him about having a colostomy. In all other aspects my Crohn's is manageable (NO drugs thank you kindly) or rather I can handle the symptoms. What I can't abide any longer is the frequent washroom trips, not being able to take car trips or, Im being honest here, my inability to "hold" what comes out of the rear end.
Im getting married at the end of the month (he supports "our" decision fully), going back to school(Acupuncture) and I need a better quality of life.
My question to all of you is: Is this feasible? Anything I should be concerned with/about? Any feed back (pro's or con's) would be wonderful!!
