Since I was 5 I've had terrible bowel problems and a lot of embarrassing moments. For a whilst I've been able to manage the problem with different medication but lately it's returning to how it used to be and it's bringing me down.
Me and my parents have spoken about what I could do to manage and I was referred by one of my doctors (for a different problem) to a surgeon and I was offered an operation to remove the colon.
I have been thinking lately about using adult diapers to control the situation and avoid accidents. I also have a lot of trouble with mobility so I think it would help in that area too instead of nearly causing injury trying to get to the toilet on time.
I'm 21 and still live with my parents. I feel like I can usually talk to them about anything and there has been plenty of times we have spoken about the accidents. But I'm having a lot of trouble bringing this one up.
I was thinking about starting off by talking to my mum about my problems and somehow steering the conversation towards this subject but I don't really know where to go from there. I have been thinking lately, maybe I should just wear all of the time and stop anything before it happens but I think saying something like that might get her worried.
What should I do? How can I bring this up without making people worry?
Any advice would be great and would help a lot,
Thanks in advanced
