My 2nd step is finally almost here. On May 30th I go in to have the pouch formed. I'll still be an ostomate, though - I'll have a loop ileo for two months. But after THAT - no more bag! Yikes!
I'm nervous but evcited, too. I'm hoping this surgery goes easier than the first, since I am actually healthy going into this one.
Anyone here have a loop ileo? Any advice?
If at first you do not succeed, then skydiving is surely not meant for you.
