Hi I have today joined the group.
I need a little advice and feel this is the place 😀
I have been for my pre op today. Operation was scheduled for 3rd Dec, I have endometriosis, fibroid, chocolate cysts, kissing ovaries adhesions and now 2 masses. My bowel is joined to my bladder. All this was told to me 4 years ago
I was told that the operation could not take place at the weekend as there were no bowel surgeons around.
I was also told there was a possibility I may need to have a colostomy bag fitted. Possibly temporary. Could someone please tell me why this might be the case and if anyone else has had one. How it felt etc.
I thought I was coping very well until I heard this news and then I went to pieces.
I am a strong person usually but I am in bits for the fear of having one of these fitted.
I'm now waiting to be told of a new date to have operation.
