Ok, does anyone out there have any worries about having a permanent colostomy or one for a short period of time?? I had mine for 7 months, just about got used to it, then I had a reversal operation.
Now - 100% better...
The thing is when I went in to hospital I was so ill, I lost approx 2.5 stone and was on all sorts of medicines/drugs (from the hospital) that I didnt really care what the staff did to me, anything was better than the PAIN and discomfort I was in... I was in pain for about 2 or so months then it got too unbareable I eventually went to the Doctor. Advice there is to go to the Doctor ASAP as soon as any symptons occur...
Now, its 8 years on, does anyone else out there have any problems when going to the loo??
I don't, thankfully.
So, in a nutshell, having a colostomy either temporary or permanent ISNT the end of the world... :-) G
