Well I have been so anxious over my appt with my GOOD surgeon on Monday my good Doctor said most surgeons like to wait 6 months, in a week it will be 5 months. My last bad surgeon who gave me a mess said my colon is basically shot. I don't know if I want to believe him. My biggest fear is not waking up with a stoma but it might be an illeostomy. I might be mistaken but don't the liquids burn your skin and you flow all the time.??. I don't really know the difference between illleostomy and colostomy but my colostomy usually shuts down for the night. Only had about three nights when I was up emptying the bag. I have been feeling sick like prior to my emergency surgery and my good dr and me agreed I could have sprung a small leak. Or my really sick gallbladder is acting up. He said make sure to tell the good surgeon and he might take me in sooner. He said I have to be my own best advocate. My luck with my health has been rotten so now I think it will take a turn and it will all be ok. I am ok if I wake up with a true rosebud stoma but for a colostomy. The bad surgeon really botched up by taking only a small piece and then not hooking me back up. Then tells me I have a 10% chance of this happening again. I am sure glad I found all of you. If I was ten years younger oh but I am not . Ok your turn
