    Good luck! The toughest part is making the decision.

    It will take a little getting used to it but it's well worth it. If you have any questions ask. Good luck!

    Good luck. Just be prepared for an adjustment period. I was a bit naive about the healing process and expected to recover sooner and have it work well quickly. It definitely is a process. Still all good (even the unpleasant unknowns haven't change my opinion).

    Very true. Work your way back to exercising and activity. Getting out and being active again is key, but I agree it took a bit longer than I expected.

    After 17 years, I had a colostomy on June 27. Was only in the hospital until June 30. So far it's going very well. My bag gurgles once in a while with gas. Does that go away after some time?

    5 days, that's great. I was good at 5 days. Things got more intense once I was eating a regular diet for a minute or 3. Gas happens - for me it doesn't just sit and twist me up inside anymore, it actually passes when it should.
