Thanks Shaz032, for the we page contacts for the illiostomy bags samples etc, I have contacted all 4,and samples on the way.
Apologies I should introduce myself, Fudgie here, have suffered & coped with Ulcerative Colitis for the past 10 years, asacolon, oral steroids, Vi steroids and diet, worked till now. Was given the option for imuno suppressants or surgery two weeks ago, had surgery removed all large bowel 6 days ago, so early days yet. Feel relief already as I was going 30 times a day with cramps before surgery. The hospital let me home early with local nurse assist. Great to be back at home with my wife and three great kids, 2 weeks away from them was the toughest. So far bag is great, and getting the hang of it, finding all the benefits of open-empty and go! Again thanks for the guidance, great forum, where were we all before the Internet??? If you have any other pointers, tips, experiences for an illiostomy bag with "L" plate let me know.
Talk soon Fudgie-Lite (1.5 stone lighter!)
