Sara14, looks like you joined here just before I did. I can totally relate. I do alot of extended 4 and 5 day hikes. At the very beginning of my diagnosis, surgery was discussed as a future option as nothing was working. I was on a trip once and every time I needed to "go", I had to dig a hole. It looked like someone air raided the place by the end of the week LOL. It was no fun at all. I read alot about j-pouch camping and backcountry hygeine for it etc. etc. It would change the way we do things for sure, but there are people that do it! I try to stay as positive as possible. Keep active when my body allows, and rest when it's telling me to. Hard not to cheat a little on the eating side too, food so tempting.
And yeah, Nothing a little duct tape can't cure LOL
You guys are all great!
LOL at the "war zone!"
Duct tape is actually a treatment for warts, crazy as that sounds! Haha.
