I had my colostomy, descending almost end of colon, on December 4th. It does not seem to have settled into a regular pattern of working. I still get the urge to go to the loo but seem to have no control over the stoma excreting and I wondered whether anyone else has the experience and can say when, or, indeed if, it will settle down to some sort of regular pattern. At present I am having to use movicol every couple of days to get things moving.
