I had a colostomy in Dec.2015, thinking that would solve my problem. Well, by April 2016 I had my large colon removed, hernias repaired and an ileostomy formed. I was out 1.5 days and then I was back in the hospital for 20 days with multiple infections.
I've had multiple surgeries,yet I keep on living the best life I can.
