Ulcerative colitis gone wild here. Fed up and seeing a surgeon on monday about
a total proctocolectomy with permanent ileostomy and I have a few questions for you folks.
I find myself living in an easy chair lately and wonder what will be most comfortable with a healing butt wound. We have some slightly "stiffer" recliners in the house but my wife and I have talked about
buying a cushy new recliner since I've read sometimes it may be more comfortable while I heal to sleep in a recliner. Any thoughts?
If you didn't find a big chair like this comfortable what worked for you to get comfortable? One of those inflatable butt rings? Cold packs? Warm packs?
I'm SOOO ready for this surgery! Any basic advice for myself or my wife?
Thanks! I'm sure this won't be the last you hear from me.
