I had a question about reversal of a colostomy. I have had my colostomy since I was born and had it reversed just a year into life. Then after another year or so things were not working and I was getting enemas and rashes so they gave it to me once again. Now at 24 I want to give it another try and see if it's possibly. Does anyone have stories of having it their whole life and then getting a reversal and hopefully successfully??
I also have something called VATER syndrome, it is very rare and if I recall I had an imperforated anus and this is one of the main reasons that I had the colostomy. My mom also believes that the docter said that I may have no nerve endings in my colon.
If anyone has a little information good or bad that they could provider for me, I would appreciate it. My whole life has kind of been a struggle with it. I was very athletic but I wasn't able to do any kind of sports because I would have accidents and I would not be able to keep the patch on. It seems like I still have problems that if I have an accident because it becomes majorly loose.
