I've had IBD for 30 years and three temporary ostomies, the last of which was in 2005. Now it's time to do away with my J-Pouch for good.
My questions are: What new has come on the scene as far as appliances are concerned. How about swimming or even hot tubs? Possible?
What about stoma placement height? I'm 6'2' and am 30 #'s overweight due to my last Prednisone blast, and hoping that will come off now. Please anybody?
Grandpa Dave is 70.
