Reconnect My Colostomy

Just left my surgeon’s office. He said my emergency colostomy was due to diverticulitis, not Ulcerative Colitis or Cancer, and it should be safe to reconnect me. I have already had an EKG by my primary care physician and it was clear. However, Dr. Carter still wants a release from my cardiologist. I have an appointment to have a colonoscopy through my stoma. When the release from the gastroenterologist and the cardiologist get to Dr. Carter, we will do the reconnect through the old incision. I do not have a hernia now and he warned me against exercise other than walking for the next year. Of course, it is hard to walk with no cartilage in my left knee or left ankle, but I will do the best I can. Prayers are requested, please.

Flying Within The USA With A Colostomy

I have a friend who will  soon be flying from TN to N.C. and she was given two cards, one that is blue that said Urgent use of bathroom….guess that is for emergencies and a white one that she is to show to the scanners and they are suppose to take me to a private room to be “pat down”.   Has anyone else flown recently and recieved these cards and do they work when needed?  

 

She is also scared of “blowing up” in flight which I doubt will happen but has anyone traveled recently and if so have you experienced any problems either with security or in flight problems?

 

I have had my colostomy for 4 years but have not flown in that time and she has not had hers a year yet and is new to this.
