Treatment

Colostomy?

  • By DorisE

    Not sure if this subject is on this site somewhere as still getting lost…so I have had IBS D for many years… I think radiation to pelvis in 1985 started it but doctor said that has healed. Anyway, my daughter is wondering about having my bowl removed and using a colostomy bag….is that an option as now daily diarrhea and frequent stomach pains regardless of what I eat.

    Oh Chris just read article re Ostomies… very clear and concise. I hadn’t realized there were various types… and I must admit I felt sadness for those who need these operations…. that is a lot to go through. I will also pass this info. to family…. as the procedure, use and care of the various Ostomies is not a simple or pleasant thing to go through as many people think, and my heart goes out to those having to make this choice.
