I am 14 months post emergency colostomy. Labor day 2009 I went to the ER thinking I had a bowel obstruction and 5 hours later I was in surgery.

7 days in hospital and 15 minutes on how to care for my colostomy. No discussion no suggestions, no options. This frustrates me to no end.

I now don't know if I want a reversal or not. I am looking for information on different types of appliances. One piece or two piece, what are the pros and cons of each?

I would like to learn more about irrigation.

Hey drop me a line!

I am looking to find out more about living with ostomy. When I got sick, no information was provided and now it seems reversal is considered elective.
