Its been a few weeks since i have posted on here - I have been one of those people who have their ostomy, recovered from surgery, and then been out being active!
I have a date penciled in for a second surgery (step 2 of 3) for a j-pouch (end of sept). I am thinking over all the pros/cons etc of having the jpouch done. The biggest issue if have with the ileostomy is the noise!! The fact i have no control over it and how loud it can be sometimes. Do those of you with J-pouches have a lot of noise? I am guessing it will be like before, you can feel you have gas building up, but can control again as normal when you let it pass? (even if you need to be on the toilet when it passes). Is all the noise internal again - ie no more farting sounds happening unless you want to pass the gas?
Dont mean to sound silly asking this, its just a worry i have!
Hope everyone is doign well.
