Ostomy Reversal / hernia repair

Mon Nov 11, 2019 11:44 pm
This is a great community. Consider joining.

Hi everyone. I always said I was chicken shit to have the reversal done cause of pain. Now I have a hernia that can only be accessed by cutting me open. I've decided to go for the reconnection. Surgery is early Dec. I so wish it was behind me, no pun intended.

I really like this site, to know there are people going thru or already been through things that I knew nothing about when I first got on here in '16. Anyway I'd like to ask for prayers for the doctors and myself during this time. God bless you all!    ~Linda

These are the top 5 issues ostomates face:

1. Dating and relationships
2. Concealing the pouch
3. Foods to eat and avoid
4. Losing or gaining weight
5. Pouch ballooning

Hi Linda, I pray evrything will go good for you and that you will have a speedy recovery. I think any surgery is a little scary but I will pray you have peace and for the Dr to have guidence though the  surgery.  Let us know how you are doing. Best wishes and prayers.

Hi Linda. Not sure how much the prayers have to do with it but I think we’re all blessed being here and sharing. I’m betting you’ll be sharing some good news with us pretty soon.
PS: I think the believers might be blessed a bit more
