I would ask again at your next appointment the percentage chance you would have a temp ostomy. It was probably initially mentioned because when they do a resection for a perforation there is a higher risk of complication so to ensure the resection heals they will do a temp ostomy.
If your perforation is healed the chance probably went down. But I think there is always a small chance depending on the
location and what the surgeon sees once in there
I have not had a small bowel resection but did have a temp ostomy for my colon resection. I adapted quite well to it. My colon was perforated and my surgeon told me flat out it was 50% chance I would need it and that he was a conservative surgeon so he was more likely to give me one than not.
After my first surgery I was taking a couple mile walk by 2 weeks and cleared for the gym at 6 weeks.
