I'm a 65-year-old woman that recently had surgery on my obstructed bowel. I have a colostomy. My sigmoid colon was affected.
I have a lot of questions. I can accept the fact that I've had this surgical procedure and not sure at this point if I would have it reversed. I'm interested in feedback regarding reversal. I'm an RN and I think that helps although
I worked in pedi psych during my career. This is all very new to me.
I spend 6 months in Naples Florida during the Winter and worried that the hot weather may affect the colostomy bag.
Wondering if anyone has a favorite. I have tried Hollister and Coloplast, SenSura, Mio 1 piece pouch. I prefer the one piece as it seems easier for me.
Looking forward to chatting with anyone.
Best, C
