Well, I have been so anxious over my appointment with my good surgeon on Monday. My good doctor said most surgeons like to wait 6 months, and 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 ileostomy. 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 ileostomy and colostomy, but my colostomy usually shuts down for the night. I've 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 doctor and I 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 okay. I am okay 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 he 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. Okay, your turn.
