Colostomy / Ostomy Reversal

Posted: Wed Apr 11, 2012 8:51 pm
Had my colostomy reversed as well as a colostomy hernia repaired a few months ago after having it for around six months. Re connect surgery was successful and I am feeling pretty normal. A very bad case of diverticulitis brought it all on. I ignored a bad stomach ache that finally turned severe. I spent a month total in the hospital on strong antibiotics attempting to clear up the infection to no avail. My colon ruptered during the third week and had to have a section of colon removed. Had I looked into the initial stomach ache it probably would have cleared up with antibiotics. Don't ignore what you body is telling you like I did. Anyway thank you to all and the great support. God Bless.

I am in the midst of deciding a date for the reversal of my colostomy....wondered what the procedure to prepare for the surgery, and just how much time should be allowed for the recuperation of this surgery.  On Dec. 14, 2011 I had an abcessed colon with no pain until the last few hours before the  emergency surgery when the colon burst.....then several weeks in rehab with antibiotics for the infection.  Any good or bad points to consider ????
