I have had colostomy since 2012 because of perforated bowel tear.. I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer and had radiation and chemo last year.. thankfully tumor was removed january 2013...I am now concerned with multiple bowel obstructions that have landed me in the hospital every 3 to 4 weeks.. dr cant do a reversal until I lose 100 pounds. If dr fixes the three hernias that may be causing obstructions then because of surgeries and scar tissue I would never have the reversal... im so torn. Before this I was productive and now I constantly fighting depression. my husband is supportive...and my family love me but they have their own lives..often I feel alone..
