Welcome to

Please use the "search site" option at the top of the page to see the various posts... there has been a lot of talk about various peoples' surgeries and I am sure that you will find a lot of good information on this forum.

When is your surgery? And, if you don't mind me asking, why are you getting a colostomy?

Diagnosed with CD in 1979, many resections and meds
