I had a rectal prolapse repair in 2016 at which time my rectum was damaged. I have been going through many procedures and surgeries since then. I had an ileostomy for 3 months while my colon was healing from one of the surgeries. Now my situation is that I no longer have an ostomy but I cannot control my bowels. I have an option of keeping things the way they are or I can elect to have a colostomy. Right now I am wearing depends due to bowel incontinence. I have a decision to make and would really like to get some advise.
