Hey guys. I haven't posted in awhile so here's an update. 6/16 ostomy due to diverticulitis, sigmoid colon removed. 1/17 reversal done. 3/16 reversal unsuccessful due to leakage, sepsis and near death thing. Back in bag. 9/17 take down again but wake up to illostomy for reattachment recovery.12/17 went in for illostomy take down and wake up with bag again! Turn's out colon not dilated enough. Since then I've gone through two colon dilation procedure's with another day after to marrow. I'm really, really trying to be patient and go with what needs to be done but waking up with that bag after the last hospital visit got to me a lot. I'm fighting off depression as best I can but its getting tough. After four surgery's my body looks like a 2 year old tried to draw a tic tac toe board on me. I'm not really concerned with how I look, but I am worried about how I feel. I've got a lot of surface pain spot's and numbness. Oh and I don't have to worry about making babies anymore. Thank goodness that's OK by me. Anyhow, I hope this next dilation is the last and I can finally get my bag removed for the last time. Happy new year everybody and god bless.
