I just joined today.  I've had a colostomy since June 5th, 2019.  I'm considering irrigation and wondering if there is anybody else on here that does that.

Welcome John! This forum is awesome with lots of helpful people. 😊

I do believe there are a few folks on here who do irrigation and I'm sure they will be along shortly to share their expertise with you. You can can also do a search in the forum for past posts. Good luck! 


Irrigation is a great tool to manage your ostomy. If you qualify I suggest that you try it, should you decide to I would be glad to help you get started. 


Welcome aboard, John. I do not know anything about irrigation as I have an illeostomy. However, I wish you terrific luck if you are going back to the dating scene. It’s … difficult. Drop me a line if you’d like to discuss it further. Cheers!

Thanks for your message.  I will confirm with my surgeon end of June.  Fingers crossed.  Seems like it will be a life changer.
