Hi! I hope I am posting in an appropriate place. .
I am a 20y.o. male who has had a left orchiectomy to remove testicular cancer. As part of my adjuvant treatment I've elected to have lymph node removal surgery. It's gets better, because I ALSO have ulcerative colitis. :-) soooo, I'll have my colon removed with my lymph nodes. They will construct an ileal J pouch, but for the first 3 months I will have an ostomy bag :-/
Has anyone else had a colectomy? I'm a bit nervous. . Will I be incontinent at any point? Will this affect how I wear diapers for fun? (Messing isn't exactly fun for most :/)
Please share your stories :-)
