I had a colostomy reversal June 8th. 1 year and 2 days to getting my colostomy from emergency diverti ulitis bowel perforation, sepsis, c.diff....you name it I had it. 1 month in hospital and significant weight loss. My recovery and side effects are very different from this reversal surgery?? I was in hospital 9 days and recovery went well, successful. But almost 3 months later I have some unexpected side effects. I think what is called fecal incontinence? Very hard to get clean, skin gets raw and very sensitive and sore. My stomach is in weird bulges and with no significant changes to a very healthy diet and exercise plan (walk 60-90) minutes everyday I have gained almost 15 lbs since being weighed day of surgery. The bloating and gas is terrible...especially from about 2pm on. It is making me scared to leave the house, nothing fits, and things are almost more unpredictable than before. Anyone relate? Am I being impatient with recovery time? The weight gain is really baffling me and messing with my head especially.
