Won't really be able to carry for a few months after surgery. Do you think chucking the bag at an assailant is sufficient or do I need to think of a different self defense method?

Just an update for those who are interested. Everything went well in short.

I got to the hospital at about 1200 yesterday having not eaten since Sunday evening. Waited around for a bit then I was in the OR by about 1330, knocked me out by about 1400 for what was supposed to be a 3.5 hour surgery. Ended up taking 6 hours.

My parents who were waiting for me were never informed about the delay either. You can imagine that made people a bit anxious. Apparently the hold up happened because I have a very small pelvis, even for a guy, so that made space tight to work in. The surgeon have another surgeon come down to assist. Then it got more fun. While trying to separate my colon from my stomach, they accidentally nicked my stomach with the cauterization knife, so another specialist was called in to make sure that was fixed properly.

Other than that everything went well. I'm in very little pain, the dilauded takes care of that, even if that's all it does for me. So it looks like in 6-8 weeks, I'll come back in for another surgery to have the natural line attached and I'll be bag free! POOP THREAD!

What happen that will cause you to lose your colon op? Is it a permanent bag or will they be able to hook you back up later on down the road?

I've got a bag in my future as well so I'm curious. They told me I was going to be on a bag before and ended up taking 16 inches of colon out but they were able to hook me back up. I think I gave the doctor extra motivation when I told him if he couldn't hook me back up I didn't want to wake up lol. Must have been the pain killers talking

you should consider pocket carry with something like an LCP or glock 43. Cargo pants ftw

Oh, I wasn't offended. I don't know if carrying is or isn't possible actually. I was just trying to be funny. I'm not worried if I can't carry for a few months

A good buddy of mine had to wear the bag. He was told to stay away from gassy foods.

A story from another guy who worked in the construction field. Had to wear a bag. He was the 'but' of many jokes. After he had the bag removed. He didn't tell anyone, and during the lunch. (He had taped a bag of chocolate pudding to his stomach) he opened up the bag and started digging in with a spoon. Really freaked the guys out.

Seriously though. Good luck.

Went thru something similar. Had to have a good amount of intestines and other innards removed because of cancer. It was several months before I could carry IWB so I used a shoulder holster instead.

I have a friend who went through that. Lost about 50 lbs, then months later it was reattached. He called me and we went out for Mexican food and margaritas.

Best of luck to you and the OP.

I lost 18 inches in 06, got hooked up fairly soon thereafter.
carried a snub in an ankle holster.

Bummer. My uncle had colon cancer and had the surgery where they remove it and sew up the butthole.

It was either lose his asshole or die of cancer. Considering he's still alive, I'd say he made the right call.

Good luck, OP!
