Praying...I did not meet my ostomy nurse until the day before my surgery when she came in my hospital room to mark my body. The nurse will mark the place that you want the stoma. This is something you should think about
. Do you want it high on your abdomen or lower? Mine is located 2 inches below my naval and over to the right (I think they are always on the right side of the body). You can see the photo of my bag
location at photobucket.com.
I wouldn't stress too bad about
her not calling you back right away. She is probably one woman and very, very busy. However, I would be persistant...remember the sqeaky wheel gets the grease so make sure you sqeak A LOT!
