Just wishing all those who have suffered from rectal cancer and had to undergo a colostomy
that, rather than having to use bags all the time, you can irrigate
. I found that I only needed to do this every other day and never had to endure having to suffer the embarrassment of leaks etc.
Please feel free to ask me any questions as I have been doing this for over 10 years now and appear to know a great deal more about it (having had to solve irrigation-related problems on my own) than most specialised nurses do.
