    Crohn's and stoma... why?

    So basically that is my question. If you have crohns how did you end up with a stoma? Is it a temporary one or is it a permanent one? Why do you have it and how do you deal with having one? I have to say... about 6-7 years ago if someone would have asked me about a stoma my reply was that...
