'I have a question regarding surgery to repair a retracted stoma. I currently have a loop illeostomy which was placed in April 2018. I've just returned from my surgeron's office and am scheduled to have the stoma repaired at the end of Janaury. The surgeon said I would spend one night in the hospital and could return to work whenever I wanted too. Of course he left and the nurse came in and said it would be at least 2 nights in the hospital and I should plan on being off of work for approximately one to two weeks. Rather different messages. I was wondering if anyone on this sight might be faimilar with this surgery and able to share any additional information that might be helpful.
Thank you so very much.
