I agree with Sue; however, since none of us chose to have UC, CD or any of the other situations that have given us our ostomies, at least some of us have an option to choose how we'd like to try living life somewhat "normally" again, if indeed living with an ostomy just doesn't work for you. No one can make that decision for those who are eligible, but gaining as much information before making those decisions will allow you to make an informed one. Life is not always peaches and cream as we all know, but we have learned to deal with many things. Does that make any sense?
