Talk to others with an Ostomy


Hi I've been an ostamate since January of this year like a lot of you I developed a parastomal hernia shortly after surgery and was not told to use a belt either I have a Mellon as well now I use the bravo by coloplast it a shame that we have to learn what we need from internet when we should have been told I am scheduled to have reversal and hernia repair in July I'm afraid of how I will react if I wake up with another ostomy because I can't be reversed I'm so sad now can anyone out there offer any prayers or words of wisdom I have searched for good hospital and surgeon that my insurance would cover I did a lot of homework and asked a lot of questions but I'm still scared
