Hi, I was diagnosed with Rectal Cancer this year (2021) and then was given a temp ileostomy. I’m supposed to have it reversed and I’ve pushed my surgery now 3 times. Idk if the bag is worse or the after effects of having surgery and using my bottom again. The bag is pretty manageable and I can still go workout and do what I want but also having a hernia under the stoma is no fun but again manageable.
