OK, I have a colonoscopy coming up in a week (Friday morning). I'm not too worried about it as I will be under MAC sedation (I'm still freaking out a little because hospitals are always a little discerning with me), but I've never had one before so there's that.
Anyway! I have a temporary sigmoid colostomy due to diverticulitis and my colonoscopy will determine the fate of my stoma (I never named the stoma itself, but I did name my bag Trevor the leach, as he sucks the poo out of me; but I digress!).
I guess question wise, I'm wondering about how long after the procedure will my actual surgery be scheduled? I wouldn't expect it the be the day, or even week after. But are we talking months?
Any other helpful comments or stories would be much appreciated!
