Join the Largest Ostomy Community


I received an unexpected iliostomy, after a failed surgery to remove a piece of my colon which had a lot of diverticulitis. The new connection of my colon had a small leak, so out of safety the surgeon elected to perform an iliostomy. 4 months later I still have it. I'm hopeful in another couple months it can be reversed.
I have a complicating problem also caused the surgery, my pancreas was cut/scraped, and this also hasn't healed.
