Thread: Colostomy Surgery Tomorrow

  1. #1

    Colostomy Surgery Tomorrow

    I'm having surgery tomorrow! I want to thank everyone who has answered my questions and shared their stories with me. I can't wait to be free from a bowel program that has been causing me so much pain.

    Thanks again!

    good luck. I love my colostomy - freedom and control. No accidents.

    Same here, Would rather not have had it but doubt I'd go back to thr hours of sitting on the pot and hoping it all came out.. It really is easy, no accidents so far. Good luck

    Yes you are doing the right thing!Being free of "bowel programs" is a wonderful thing.

    I had mine done at U of W hospital in seattle.....even though it is reversible.My MD and I have decided to stay with it. Secondary, to convience and reduction of bugs near my "nether regions"....
