Talk to others with an Ostomy


My colon ruptured on 9/15/22 and I had Hartmans procedure with my sigmoid colon removed. I have an end colostomy. I just received some upsetting news today that the reversal might not be successful due to infection right after the first surgery. My stoma was necrotic and had to be revised. I'm working with my primary care doctor to find a specialist down in the Charleston area.
