I'm soon to get an ileostomy but there's one thing putting me off massively! I've heard from a few women now that vaginal intercourse is either impossible, very sore or (for lack of a better way to say it) can't go very deep after the surgery.
I've had appointments with my consultant and 2 stoma nurses who have never heard of this, but they also gave me a leaflet that said exactly my points in it?!
I feel like this is a massive gamble to be taking, especially considering no one can give me an answer?
I'd love some advice from women who have had this surgery to help me make my decision... I'm getting an ileostomy but leaving my anal stump (?) in place?
Please, someone help me! 😂
