In a word no... I would not travel so far.

Have you been given the option of a colostomy bag?
Have you got crohns?

I'm really sorry to read about your conditions and suffering, life must be so tough for you. You sound like such a strong person, and fantastic mother for staying tough and seeing things through for your son. Please try to keep going and seek other professional opinions and options.

I've never considered the bag. Once I had colitis after a bacteria cheeseburger. Always had ibs. After 2nd tummy surgery got c diff. The colitis and c diff were temporary but ibs is forever and with no diet per sa my fissures have no hope of healing but surgery doesn't work either for me.

Are you aware that hydrocortisone is only supposed to be used short-term? It has been said that it can cause thinning of the skin. How long have you used it for?
