Colostomy - The Truth
what an inspiration. Thank you for sharing. I wish you all the very best with your reversal surgery and for a quick and problem free recovery. xx
Wish you all the luck for your reversal surgery.
Thank you so much for such an honest explanation. I am so impressed by your bravery. Good luck with the reversal and your future hopes.
i wish you every success with the reversal, you have really put things in perspective for me x
Wow, what an inspirational story. To be so positive after such adversity is amazing and your story could help lots of people. I wish you all the best with your surgery and your desires for the future.
I can not say thank you enough for this blog post. Last Monday i went back to the hospital, even though i am still on zoladex etc and has only been 5 months since my last lap i am now having to have more surgery as like you they think it is in my bowel.
I had to sign a consent form for the eventuality of a colostomy bag and at 21 that is the thing i am having the worst time coming to terms with. Thank you so much for being so brave and sharing your feelings, it has given me more confidence if that situation were to occur.
I hope that everything goes well with your reversal and i wish you all the luck in the world.
you are strong ladies. stay strong
Thank you for sharing your story it reassured me as i was terrified about a possible colostomy after my next planned op.
Do you know how long on average they make you keep the bag?
Hi Isabelle. How long you have the bag is different for everyone. It depends on how quick you heal and how you are coping mentally. I was told no more than 6 months. However sadly I had severe pain just before my reversal date. My op was canceled as they were concerned about my appendix. An MRI confirmed endo is back and more aggressive than ever. So I am back on the list awaiting open surgery to cut it out. They may be able to reverse me at the same time but they don't know until they open me up. I have had mine for just over a year. Hopefully it won't be too much longer?! I wish you so much luck for your surgery and I hope it goes ahead without any complications. x
