    Vindex, thank you for your input, but the OP has not been back to our forums since the day they posted this thread (14 months ago) and so are very unlikely to see your lengthy response.

      Figured I would try at least, it is certainly a worthwhile cause.

        I currently in the process of getting in contact with the Massachusetts state medical licensing boards regarding clarification of this issue.

        I truly hope the original poster of this issue comes back.

          I can't help but believe this to be an insane choice.

            Most who have had colostomies say it has improved their life greatly.

              You are kidding right? Before my colostomy my bowel routine controlled my life. Now I control my life! I guarantee if you did a survey most will agree with me.

                Not only do we hear about so many people here on our forums who found a colostomy improved their quality of life, there have been several published research studies indicating that this is the case for many people with SCI/D. It is not for everyone, but should be considered an option for those who cannot manage their bowels otherwise.

                  I agree it should be offered as a option. For 24 years I did a 2-4 hour bowel routine. Now a less than 5 minute bag change. I compare it to my sp. Instead of having to cath every 4-6 hours I just empty my leg bag when needed.

                    It is a game changer.

                          OP has not come back to our site since their original post. Curious.
