Colostomy yes or no?


i don’t tend to post but do read the thoughts of people on subjects that are relevant to me as I find them helpful tomorrow I am going to see a consultant as my specialist nurse has suggested a colostomy I would like to ask has anyone got experience of having one and how does it help or hinder your day to day life ?

Hi Jules

I wrote a piece about my colostomy which operation I had in June last year. I’ve explained my reasons for it, the actual experience of having in and a bit of an update a short while after.

If you do a search on the Everyday Living part of the forum for ‘my colostomy operation’, you’ll find it. If you have any questions that I can help with, feel free to pm me, or add to that thread.
