I don’t have an Ostomy but joined this site because my partner recently had an operation for rectal cancer (May 2018) and now has a (hopefully) temporary illeostomy.
His histology results came back good so no chemo required and he’s hoping to have the reversal sometime in the next few months depending on the results of the contrast x-ray.
He’s recovering well from the operation but the bag is a huge issue for him with regard to body image and I’m hoping to get some insight and advice from others who’ve been through the same experience so I can better understand what he says going through.
