If surgery I would probably have a colectomy.
I never played golf when I had my ostomy but it might have bothered me with the ostomy on my side while I played. There are ostomy products to help with that but I never used them.
If you decide on an ostomy then you may want to ask some people who have an ostomy and play golf. I know that there are people who play with ostomies.
I haven't played golf in 2 years (too sick) but I'm looking forward to playing again in the Spring.
