HELLO ALL,
 
ITS BEEN AWHILE. I HAD SURGERY 3 WEEKS AGO TO REVERSE COLOSTOMY BUT AFTER THE SURGEON openED ME UP ( 3RD TIME AT SAME INCISION SITE ) HE SAID I STILL HAD TOO MANY ADHESIONS TO ATTEMPT A TAKEDOWN, I'M 4 MONTHS POST COLOSTOMY.  SO HE SAYS NOW WE WILL WAIT A YEAR BEFORE TRYING AGAIN. I WAS SO DISSAPOINTED!
 
  BUT ONE GOOD THING IS THAT HE CHANGED MY STOMA SITE AND BROUGHT IT DOWN LOWER AWAY FROM MY WAIST...WHICH WAS A REAL PROBLEM, HAD LEAKS AND BLOWOUTS ALMOST EVERY DAY.  NOW ITS MUCH BETTER SO I DO FEEL I CAN DO THIS FOR ANOTHER YEAR....JUST PRAYING THAT THE NEXT TIME HE GOES IN WE WILL HAVE IGNITION!
 
   THIS HAS BEEN SUCH A LONG ROAD BUT I KNOW OTHER PEOPLE HAVE IT SO MUCH WORSE THAN I DO .  GUESS I'LL JUST HANG IN THERE RIGHT!
 
  OH....GOT A GREAT GET WELL CARD FROM A FRIEND...REALLY MADE ME LAUGH
 
  IT SAID  "  DO YOU EVER GET THE FEELING THAT YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL WENT OUT FOR A SMOKE???
 
 
   HA! WHAT A HOOT.........
 
 
  TAKE CARE

Dear Diane:

You have such a good attitude! The answer will come eventually. Just think if your surgeon pushed ahead and did the reversal prematurely! Good luck to you and keep posting.
