    You are kidding right? Before my colostomy my bowel routine controlled my life. Now I control my life! I guarantee if you did a survey most will agree with me.

    Not only do we hear about so many people here on our forums who found a colostomy improved their quality of life, there have been several published research studies indicating that this is the case for many people with SCI/D. It is not for everyone, but should be considered an option for those who cannot manage their bowels otherwise.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

    I agree it should be offered as a option. For 24 years I did a 2-4 hour bowel routine. Now a less than 5 minute bag change. I compare it to my sp. Instead of having to cath every 4-6 hours I just empty my leg bag when needed.
