I am glad that my story did not scare you about having surgery. Do you know when you surgery is going to be scheduled for?
Do you know if you are going to have an Illiostomy or a Colostomy done?If you are having that much problem with your stools coming out of you vagina,I would suggest that you ask the doctor to remove your rectum at the same time.Just as a percaution that you don't have to go through what I had to go through.It make give you a little bit more pain to deal with,but you will be in the hospital,so you will be in a good place,for the pain,that is going to go along with the surgery.I just wish that I were able to have my Colostomy and my Rectum Removed at the same time,years ago.But every doctor that I want to for four years,kept blaming it on I.B.S.,when that was not really the case.I have what is know as Fecal Stress incontinence.It is not that well know and not to many people get,but I was the lucky one.
Well that is all for now.Good luck and stay in touch.
Take Care and God Bless San's
You are having your surgery done on the same date that I had my Colostomy surgery done on three years ago.
I know deep down in my heart that all will go will with you.I might not be there in person with you,but just remember I will there in spirit.
If you will be seeing the doctor anymore before your surgery,don't forget to ask him HOW LONG THE SURGERY WILL BE,AND about HOW LONG WILL YOU BE IN RECOVERY,if for nothing else,just to let you family know,ASK WHAT KIND OF PAIN CAN YOU EXPECT TO BE IN,AND FOR HOW LONG,AND HOW LONG DOES HE THING THAT YOU RECOVERY WILL TAKE.Thesse are question that I wish that I had of ask my surgeons,but did not think of it,and when I did,they got me side tracked talking about something else.
Where to you live and what hospital will your surgery be done at,if you don't mind me asking?
I know that you will feel much better when everything is over and done with and you are back on your feet again.There is one thing that no one ever told me,when made my problems worse,is no to lift anything over fifteen pounds.If you do,who could cause yourself to get a hernia.They are not fun and can hurt.Since my rectum removal,my husband willl not let me lift anything heavier then a dish.I have had four stomach surgeries with in ten years.I guess that is why he is so protective of me.
I wish all the luck in the world,and remember I may not be there in person with you,but I will be there in spirit.I hope that we stay in touch before and after your surgery.
God Bless You and My Prayer Are with you.
