Has anyone out there had to have a colostomy bag due to having a large portion of their colon removed? I have horrid IBS-C and lots of redundant colon. I'd like the whole dang-blasted thing removed so I don't feel so horrible. I need to get a job and move on with my life but I can't until this is all resolved. I've thought about just removing the whole thing and getting a colostomy bag - anyone out there have any words of wisdom?? I'm 34 - too young to spend the rest of my life stopped up on a daily basis!!
