As many of you know, I had ulcerative colitis for many years and it really caused many problems. Recently I had a surgery, called a colectomy with ileostomy, which has handled the situation terminatedly. Anyway, I avoided doing this surgery for many years, and I don’t know that I would have done it any other way, but I did finally end up having the surgery and things have been going very well since.
So, to give others another source of data about the surgery and what possible effects it may have on their lives, I have created another blog, http://ostomyMan.com. There are many sources of technical information about the surgery but very few sources of real life data about what it does on a more personal level, so I wanted to help fill that void with my new blog.
