I'm new to all of this and I'm trying to find another police officer with an ostomy. I had diverticulitis with a perforation in my colon and had to have emergency surgery. Woke up in a daze and have a bag on my belly! Now I'm on sick leave waiting to be cleared to go back to work with. I'm curious to see if I can still be a police officer with a bag. Luckily mine can be reversed, but will be 4 to 6 months. Don't know if I can afford to be out that long or if I'll end up on disability until after the reversal. Anyone have/had experience like this or know someone? Thanks!
