    Going for flex sig in 1 hour

    I've got a J-pouch (even though it's not hooked up) and am having my every 2-year flexible sigmoidoscopy today. I just did a Fleets enema to clear the mucus, as instructed, and I am in SO much pain. I did not expect this at all and I am seriously freaking out. No bleeding, so I can't imagine...

    Abdominoperineal resection

    Because I intend to hang on to my stoma as long as possible, I have considered just going for it and having the J-pouch removed and back door closed up permanently. I've seen many people here who have had this surgery having prolonged healing times and issues with infection, so realize this...

    I give my ostomy presentation tomorrow!

    Tomorrow I will present my ileostomy to my classmates in an oral presentation discussing proctocolectomy, J-pouch, and ileostomy surgery, and how the surgery world can make things easier on us ostomates. No one in my class has any clue that I am the "patient" I am discussing..until the last...

    First day--Success!

    Today was my first day back in school. I'm more than over-the-hill in years, but today was an especially big day for me in that I have been working from home for the last 6 years because of UC. Now that I have Sideshow Bob, I am liberated from my previous limitations and have begun studying to...

    Had a loop ileostomy placed in January and today during a bag change was the first time I saw the distal opening function. At first I freaked out thinking something was wrong, but it was just mucus. Read up a little bit more and found out this was normal. Totally trippy!!!!!

    Halloween prank

    While answering another thread, I hit upon an idea for Halloween. My husband chimed in as well and this is what our sick minds came up with. Eat a bunch of beets so it looks like a bag of blood, attach a second stoma bag on the other side of my abdomen full of candy, and answer the door...
