Pinkie pooh

I had rectal cancer, diagnosed in 2013, had surgery the end of the year and had an ileostomy at that time. The ileostomy was reversed 3 months later. Started having problems with bowels the first of this year, 2015, only to find I had radiation proctitus which ended me back in the hospital and durning a procedure a fistula occurred which in turn caused me to have to have a colostomy. Now it is a waiting game, Doctor 80percent sure it will become permanent but it will be about 8 months before he will even consider the possibility of reversing it.
I want to meet people who have gone thru similar situations and those who are irragating their Stoma and if they have had any problems doing so.
