March 9, at 2: Those were the good days, the bad ones were when the side effects lasted all day. I eventually developed allergic reactions to every laxative on the market that resulted in my being told I was out of options,, time for surgery. My worst nightmare was coming true, a colostomy bag. Being the stubborn person I can be, I started researching the internet to see what my life was about to become. I came upon the article about the BCIR. I firmly believe God put that article in front of me because He knew I could not wrap my head around having a bag. I called the number on the website, sent my medical records, called several people, whose numbers the office sent of people who had the surgery, decided I could live with that , was approved for the surgery. The hospital has a set program they follow. My surgery was on Wed.

Elvis and Kathy with William G. ISBN 0 96 0 3 Kathy Westmoreland, often introduced in concerts by Elvis Presley as “the little girl with the beautiful high voice” and nicknamed “Minnie Mouse” by him, sang soprano with Elvis from until , replacing Millie Kirkham when she left to have surgery. For a long time Kathy kept quiet about the nature of her relationship with Elvis, but eventually was driven by impatience with the so-called Elvis experts and their “lies” to put her side of the story down in writing.
This is the fourth book by a female author I’ve reviewed where the purported motive is to counter lies and misinformation and to provide a more balanced picture of Elvis Presley. All four books have quite a lot of common ground, although each have their own unique perspective. Some people may not like or agree with everything Kathy Westmoreland says, but they cannot deny that she had a place in Elvis’s life.
She was there during tours and also available over the telephone.

A colostomy involves surgically redirecting the colon (large intestine) to a stoma (surgically-created hole) in the abdominal region to allow fecal matter to exit the body and into a bag .
Everything seemed to go well at first, but for the next several months, Schroeder’s pain level gradually intensified to an excruciating degree, which is the opposite of what was supposed to happen. Then one of his nurses noticed a pad of gauze beginning to ooze its way out of one of his surgery wounds. So Schroeder was sent back to the Bavarian Medical Palace, where it was soon discovered that his doctors had left no less than 16 different items in his body , as if they had confused his vivisected torso for the floor of a taxicab.
Evidently the doctors expected Schroeder to die right then and there and were doing their best to turn his body into a time capsule. No, I’m listening for ticking. I lost my watch a week ago and I’ve looked everywhere else. However, without a doubt the most beautiful detail of this story is the fact that the negligent surgeons refused to apologize or even acknowledge that they had done anything wrong. They went so far as to suggest that the items probably got inside his torso after the surgery, although they knew better than to try to concoct a specific scenario in which more than a dozen items directly related to surgery could’ve osmosed their way through his skin.
One would assume that a procedure like that would be fairly straightforward — the doctor slices open the man’s wrinklepurse and cuts out the gonad with the facial scar and sinister goatee, leaving the gonad with the gelled hair and lantern jaw intact. However, due to some spectacular collision of fate and error, the surgeon chopped out the wrong testicle.

It was too late, however, so the doctor had no choice but to remove the remaining testicle the one that was actually full of cancer and send the patient home, while the hospital courageously pretended that the mishap never occurred.
Monday 7 July The year-old has since been interviewed on TV, made international headlines, and encouraged scores of other people who wear colostomy bags to share their own selfies.

Sign up now You can hide your ostomy To you, the ostomy bag attached to you is very obvious. When you look in the mirror, you notice the bag under your clothes. You might think every gurgle and noise coming from your stoma is loud and heard by everyone in the room. Most people won’t notice your ostomy unless you tell them about it.
As you get used to your ostomy, you’ll figure out tips and tricks to keep the bag concealed and the noises to a minimum. Here are some ideas to get you started: Empty your ostomy bag when it gets to be one-third full. That way it won’t bulge under your clothes. Work with your ostomy nurse to find the ostomy pouching system that works best for you.
If you’re worried about the odor when emptying your ostomy bag, ask your ostomy nurse or visit your medical supply store for pouch deodorants or air sprays to minimize odor.

The three types of stoma are: Colostomy, Ileostomy and Urostomy. Colostomy In a colostomy operation, part of your colon is brought to the surface of your abdomen to form the stoma. A colostomy is usually created on the left-hand side of your abdomen. Stools in this part of the intestine are solid and, because a stoma has no muscle to control defecation, will need to be collected using a stoma pouch.
There are two different types of colostomy surgery: End colostomy and loop colostomy. End colostomy If parts of your large bowel colon or rectum have been removed, the remaining large bowel is brought to the surface of the abdomen to form a stoma. An end colostomy can be temporary or permanent. The temporary solution is relevant in situations where the diseased part of the bowel has been removed and the remaining part of the bowel needs to rest before the ends are joined together.
The permanent solution is chosen in situations where it is too risky or not possible to re-join the two parts of the intestine. Loop colostomy In a loop colostomy, your bowel is lifted above skin level and held in place with a stoma rod. A cut is made on the exposed bowel loop, and the ends are then rolled down and sewn onto the skin. In this way, a loop stoma actually consists of two stomas double-barrelled stoma that are joined together.
This surgery involves a disconnection between the intestine and the rectum. Therefore, corrective surgery is needed to create a new outlet for the passage of bowel movements from the body. Depending on which part of the intestine is removed, the person will require either a colostomy or an ileostomy.

However, when it comes to adjusting to your new body and how to cope with it in the real world, in all honestly, unless they have one, they really have no clue.

It can be an extremely beautiful experience shared between partners, but it can also feel extremely vulnerable. Add a body altering surgery, and the change in body image to the mix, and thinking about intimacy with an ostomy can almost feel uncomfortable. That is a completely normal feeling, but with a little preparation, pep talk, and open communication, intimacy can still be a wonderful, fulfilling practice between partners.
Communication with a Potential Partner Initial communication about your ostomy with a potential intimate partner should happen before the clothes come off. I would suggest going on a few dates before talking about the ostomy so the person can get to know you on a deeper level first. If you seem confident and happy to have an ostomy, odds are your partner will be happy you have an ostomy, too.
