I have not posted in a while but I had successful ostomy reversal surgery. I really did not have many problems from the surgery. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ, I no longer have an ostomy bag! I was so sick from various infections I almost died three times. I am over 6 feet tall and I got down to 160 lbs and was bony. Through a high protein diet and exercise, I now weigh 205 lbs and I am muscular. I feel great! Almost dying was good for me because it led me to the Catholic Church and the Lord Jesus Christ. If you are Catholic and have an ostomy, offer your suffering to Jesus Christ. My time with an ostomy was like purgatory. I pray that all of you are blessed with the strength to carry on.
