    So glad to hear that you are happy with your decision.

    Glad it's working out for you. Worst thing for me is the quad belly look; which is nothing compared to pre colostomy.
    I did not. I changed the way I did a few thing's and my surgeon and nurse told me take a breath and stop over thinking everything. It's all worked out.

    Thanks everybody for the advice and help for me making this decision.

    After 24 years of bc I didn't think twice about having the procedure.

    BTW, when I first had my colostomy a friend who'd already had the procedure recommended a Litter Genie as a way to dispose of the colostomy bags. So, you use a plastic bag to collect the colostomy bag as usual and then drop into the container. This works extremely well - no odor at all.

    This, times eleventy billion. After 17 years, life is much easier now. I can easily travel with my wife (marrying her a few years ago was also the best thing I've done) and save hours per week.
