Had ileostomy surgery 7 months ago and struggling with this new way of life. Trying to get as much information as possible. Hoping to have a reversal in a few months - I think it is temporary but not absolutely sure. Need to obtain a new surgeon, my original surgeon has left the practice. Any information other ostomates can share is appreciated. I was told at the time of surgery that I had a blockage, surgeon did not see any cancer, to which I am grateful. I don’t think I could ever get used to this.
