I don't want this question to sound offensive (maybe I should post it in Ostomy section?)...
But I'm curious about
those who have permanent ostomies instead of j-pouches.....are you "upset" that you don't have a j-pouch or can't get one?
I mean do you WISH you had a j-pouch instead of a bag? I guess we all could wish for a healthy colon!
I've been reading some posts and it sounds like people with the bags/ostomies (and not j-pouches) are ACTUALLY HAPPY??! That is great. Aren't most people very DEPRESSED with a bag? Long-term depression? Or do they "get over it"?
I know someone who has a bag and said her surgeon did not leave her the option of having a j-pouch....and she is PISSED!
Sorry, I have WEIRD questions
