I have just seen a colorectal surgeon., one of the best in Salt Lake.  He waid that my stoma is not really prolapsed very much.  The humongous bulge is a hernia located under the stoma.  He assured that there is practically no chance of strangulation and absolutely no need for surgery/  I guess we will head home tomorrow, but my wife insists we stop at Pepperidge Farms and get some cookies and at Gossner Cheese for some cheese and stabalized whipping cream.  Who am I to argue especialy about the cookies..  Thanks to you all for your support

Ralph,
That is the power of prayer! I am so glad that you are not going to have to undergo surgery. So, what are you going to do about the hernia? Did you get to see Temple Square while you were in Salt Lake? My husband and I wanted to walk the area when we lived in Utah but we never got a chance and then we had to move suddenly. I was only in Salt Lake once and it was to fly into Utah's airport.

Enjoy your cookies!

That's great news, I'm so happy for you. Your problem now is that fitting an appliance around your stoma hasn't been addressed. Let us know how that goes.

Mmmmm, cookies...


MMMmmmmmm, cheese...

Your trip was a success all the way around, lol.

Ileostomy since August 2005.
As result of surgery (modified whipple) for necrotising pancreatitis. Removal of gallbladder, 2/3 of pancreas, resections of large and small intestines. Massive infection. 8 months in ICU at Westchester County M.C. (I think that's a record). Second surgery for resection due to fistulas in January 2007. Been slowly recovering since then. Possible reconnection candidate.

Hello Ralph----

I just walked in the door from going out to dinner and a movie.  A date with my husband no less!!!  And, to top off my nice evening, I see this great news from you.   I bet you and your family are just so relieved.  As my husband calls cookies, "cookles" -- mmmmm!!!    Congrats on the news - I've been thinking about you,

Ralph,
That is wonderful! My husband and I were sealed in the Orlando Temple...I would have loved to have gone out to Salt Lake but then our family would not have been able to attend.

I hope you enjoy your dinner! I am very excited that things are looking up for you.
