Ileostomy
by: Survivor!

Hello, I've had Crohn's since a teenager and am now in my forties. I can tell you that I've experienced it all, the pains, the hospital stays (and many), the depressions, and the embarrassment, therefore I feel that I could answer any question. I'm certainly not going to say that it's been an easy road because it hasn't by any means. First, let me answer your "smell" question; the product I found to really work is a blue colored liquid called M-9 which can be purchased at your local pharmacy, or usually where you get your Ileostomy supply. For years I went thru the embarrassment when using the bathroom, and/or when having one of my many "accidents" while in bed sleeping. I was advised against the said liquid product as I was told it was used for a different purpose. I decided to give M-9 a try anyway and could not believe how well it worked. I was amazed at the result, a few drops (more than what the bottle says) and all smell and odor were gone. I swear by this product and can no longer live without it. I can now use the bathroom without having to hide my face, I can finally accept dinner invitations in people's homes, and can finally use the bathrooms at work without constant worry. What a relief! I beg you to try M-9, you'll be amazed...For the record, I've had 18 surgeries therefore I can answer a few questions anyone may have. I've been thru everything from pain, painful exams to awful treatments, surgery, diet, countless hospital stays, embarrassing loss of bowel control, loud noises, major weight loss, sudden weight gain due to meds not counting other side effect, of course depression and panic attacks, and so on...I know that many are asking about Crohn's and pregnancy, and my answer to this question is that after many surgeries and med intake, I was lucky to have a healthy baby boy who is now 22 yrs. old and very healthy...Good luck and take my word on the M-9, you'll be relieved!
