About
I just recently had a colostomy done on Sept. 24th 2018. I have ran into complication, developed a stomal hernia and other hernias. I am allergic to all the devices except for the non-allergenic that hollister makes. I can't use any adhesives. I also have other medical conditions such as RA. I just recently had another surgery on my right wrist for carpal tunnel which has been a nightmare due to being right handed.I am just looking for someone to talk to and help me with what they eat and a few other things. I was told not to eat veggies, fruit with seeds and no skin. No nuts,seeds and other things. I only seen a stoma nurse twice and have been on my own. Surgeon dismissed me after post-op. He did order a ct scan to confirm hernias and told me he will not reverse my colostomy because I am at high risk. I am just frustrated and not to mention the cost. Nobody told me how expensive all this stuff would be. I want this reversed. This is so crazy that I can't eat my fruits and veggies, salads and the foods I was use to eating. I do put frozen fruit in blender and make a smoothie sometimes. Just looking for some advice.
