Make the best of what you have and things will be awesome!!
I've had my ileostomy for about 4 years now.I had appendix cancer in 2008 and had the HIPEC procedure which was successful in removing the cancer although 7 years later realized the chemo had destroyed my intestines. I was hospitalized for a bowel obstruction in January of 2014 and didn't get home from the hospital until June of 2016! After the Dr.s realized they could not control the fistulas that kept popping up they gave me the ileostomy and left 1 of the fistulas underneath the stoma. Needless to say I have to wear a giant wound management bag! but....I'm alive and my only complaint is the burning around my stoma and fistula.
