I have had quite a few people say, "how can you live without a colon?" my response is always, "much better than with one!"
I had one person INSIST to me that I must be lieing and still have some large intestine left because, according to him, there is no way on this earth you can live without a colon. No matter what I said, he just wouldn't believe me that I no longer had mine!
Ileostomy for 34 years due to UC. I had my surgery at 10 years of age.
