Underwent surgery in August 2020 to remove an orange size cyst ending in removal of 12” of colon, right ovary, and appendix. I now sport an ileostomy. I was scheduled to have reversal a few months later then had a “mild heart attack” and setbacks resulting in delays for reversal. Early on this journey I could hardly wait for reversal. After all this time I have learned to accept wearing a bag. As of now I have decided against reversal.
I enjoy reading the questions, comments, occasional humor and valuable input from fellow Ostomates on this site. Especially the “on the job” experiences of those in the know.
