About
Hi. Acquired a colostomy 2 years ago. Figured out how to have intimate relations by a) taking anti diarrhea pills for the anticipated time of the activity, b) wearing a simple 'weight belt' that concels the bag (if folded) and c) if the date is a one nighter, I just say it covers a wound and nasty scar tissue and leave it at that. With somebody more serious, I still don't tell them in advance. Wound is enough. After a time when I feel comfortable with the relationship will I explain what the wound is and how I got it.
