Colostomy in California

This is new to me. I've had my Stoma and colostomy for a bit over a year from chronic diverticulitis. Kept getting in excruciating pain, and wound up with a colostomy bag. It was a botched surgery. What should have been laparascopic kept me in the hospital for a month. The loss of my belly button, and this disgusting person I have come to be. I can barely look at myself. My wife can barely stand the sight of me.I have hernias Wich are extremely painful After arguing with the surgeon for making me he refused to the reversal, or any corrective work. I used to have a six pack. Now I have what can only be described as a hard patch of dead necrotic tissue, and bulges to where I feel everytime I look at myself im disguisted. I feel like all eyes are always on matter what. I truly hate what I've become.
