Though the journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step, at some point you’ll still need to go to the bathroom.
Hello and welcome! First off, you may be asking “why name a blog Colon, Interrupted“? Short answer: for a blog about Crohn’s and ostomy issues, it offers less of a chance for confusion than an alternate title like, “Colonel Mustard in the Drawing room with a colostomy bag”. Okay, that wasn’t such a short answer. In any case, it’s catchier.
I’ll be posting a bit on whatever strikes my fancy but with the intention of focusing on my experiences living with Crohn’s and an ostomy. At least I’ll be making a concerted effort to circle back around to those subjects if I stray too far off topic. My qualifications? That’d be a lack of a proper anus. Or as I once told an old friend I hadn’t seen in a decade, as an prelude to talking about my medical adventures, “I’m not the same a-hole I used to be”. Thank you very much, I’ll be here all week! Try the prime rib.
Its going on six years now since I’ve been using a colostomy bag, so I’ve got a few stories and experiences to share. I’ll mention what works or what hasn’t worked for me, tips I’ve discovered and problems or issues involved with living with Crohn’s and a stoma.
Don’t be shy, feel free to comment and ask questions and I’ll do my best to respond.
