Ubel and his co-authors – – both from U-M and Carnegie Mellon University – – studied individuals who had new colostomies: their colons had been removed and they had to possess bowel movements in a pouch that lies outside their body. At that time they received their colostomy, some individuals were informed that the colostomy was reversible – – that they might undergo a second procedure to reconnect their bowels after almost a year. Others were told that the colostomy was permanent and that they could not have regular bowel function again. The next group – – the one without wish – – reported becoming happier over the next six months than people that have reversible colostomies. We think these were happier because they got on with their lives. The cards were noticed by them they were dealt, and recognized that that they had no choice but to play with those cards, says Ubel, who’s also a professor in the Division of Internal Medicine.A 2007 research by Pinzer, released in Foot & Ankle International, demonstrated the advantages of the exterior fixator. Pinzur followed 26 obese, diabetic Charcot feet patients who had an average body mass index of 38.3. After surgery to correct the deformity, the feet bones were held in place by the exterior fixator. A full year or even more later, 24 of the 26 patients had no ulcers or bone attacks and could actually walk without braces, putting on available shoes created for diabetics commercially.
