After much thought, many consultations, and much research I have decided to get the ileostomy. After 14 years of crohn's, colon cancer, and poop accidents I'm ready to go. I will be having the rectum removed as well so this is permanent and I am at peace with the decision. I am a firm believer in acidophyllis and omega 3 fish oil. I know yogurt is good for the ostomy patient. Does anyone else take these supplements? Also, can anyone suggest a vitamin that would be absorbed by the iliostomy patient. Would liquid vitamins make a difference? Wish me luck on January 23rd.
