Has anyone had a colonostomy?
I am going to have a colonostomy Monday. Tomorrow, in preparation, I have to take all sorts of laxatives to get ready for the test. Yesterday, I was a bit unnerved when the surgery center called me and said: "Don't forget to bring a copy of your Living Will!" What am I getting into here? I don't have any particular problems, but at age 64 I guess it's time for a "roto rooter" job. Besides, it's free. My wife's insurance pays for it all. One more question. Can bike riding cause hemoroids? I seem to have developed one since I've started riding more. Thanks for your input on this delicate question!
