    Yeah, I have a lower motor neuron bowel. I have no feeling of an imminent bowel movement (accident), so I don't know about it until after it has happened. I'm with you on trying to keep the stool on the firm side.

    good luck.

    I have entertained the idea of getting a colostomy; however, since my sci was only 15 months ago, I don't want to go that route anytime soon. It seems a little drastic at this point. I do have good knowledge of life with a colostomy, as one of my good friend's from work has one and he is very open in talking about it. He has actually aked me if I have considered getting one in the future, but he agrees that it is a little too early to pursue. He's quite the character...... if I was getting on to him a little hard at work, he would threaten to give his bag a puff....... not a pleasing situation for one's nostrils!

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    I play bass. sometimes the band gets paid a little. I used to take care of horses for people. I would love to be self employed, and believe I have a great idea for what I want to do too. I want to have a practice place. where bands rent practice space, or music teachers can give lessons. I even have a potential partner too, but who is going to give a couple gimps on ssd a business loan?
