Happily married mom of three beautiful children, two of our children are adults and one is 6 year old that we adopted just before I got sick. Suffered from various intestinal issues for years. Caught seminal infection from local zoo (the kind from exotic animals and reptiles) in August 2016 which lead to C-Diff infection from antibiotic treatment. After months of having both infections I had emergency surgery February 2017 (I was septic) to remove infected intestines. Woke up with staples from breast bone to pelvic bone area and an ileostomy. Most of my intestines were removed. Trying to figure this stuff out. I’m struggling to stay hydrated and to support my body nutritionally. Looking for advice and support from those who have an ileostomy or colostomy.
