Okay, I am going to ask something and I think I know the answer...
Has anyone else gotten their ostomy due to having COVID?
This is my situation, and I have not ever heard of anyone else who got an ostomy from having COVID. I got COVID twice. The second time was the worst. I had a 108 fever, my lungs and kidneys were shutting down and then it struck my large intestines. I had emergency surgery and was in a coma for 3 days. When I woke up I had a stoma and a zipper of staples down my belly. It took so very long to recover, learning to walk was the thing I remember most. It was super painful to take even a step.
Since having my ostomy I have sought to find someone else who had a similar situation to me. Most people who have an ostomy have it from Chrons or something like that. I had no history of digestive issues aside from relfux and it was a night and day difference for me to go from no symptoms to having an ostomy. With no warning.
I want to find someone else who can relate to this. I love talking to all of you out there but I do realize your experiences are different to mine. Very different.
