I am so sorry to hear about this - he is so young what a shame and for you to have to worry - you are going to need a good vacation after this!
I have no answers I am afraid - however I gather that loop ileostomies are much worse (this is what I have, but have never had an end one).
Just wanted to send you my support - you have been so helpful to me in the past.
Best wishes and hugs,
Diag proctitis 97 - major flare and extension to left sided colitis Aug 2006 - present.
I have bled every day since Aug 2006 (I quit smoking in June 2006).
Imuran (Azathioprine) game me liver damage. LDN no luck. Asacol and mesalazine enemas - seemed to make worse. Lots of Prednisone :( No luck on drugs!
JPouch, total colectomy and ileostomy (part 1) completed Jan 2010 :)
UC no more!!!
