I had my colon removed at age 18 back in the early 80's in New York. Dr Stienberg (retired), Dr Whitzel (status unknown) and Dr Gelernt (passed about 25 years back). I was sick for a long time before the doctors gave up on me, split me open and stole my colon. I am a cold water ocean swimmer and I have a Masters of Science degree. I can do/eat pretty much anything/everything. My biggest concerns are uncontrolled smelly farts and leaking shit all over my sheets and disgusting things like that.
