So my step 2 of 3 jpouch suregery is this Friday (Ack!). And the sore that hs plaqued me since I got my stoma has decided to erupt. Like, I don't know what - It just seems to be under my skin now. It hurts and it never hurt before. It's oozing thick yucky stuff, when it used to ooze slowly, and it was clear liquid.
Now I'm scared my surgeon will say I can't have the surgery, or something. I had heard of people who had their stomas moved to the other side of their abs, I'm wondering if maybe my surgeon could do this, to allow this darn sore to heal. It's really bad, and it really hurts.
Has anyone had their stomas switched? I'm really hoping this ulcer that NEVER goes away, and is now scaring me, cause it seems almost infected, is not a sign that I will have pouch problems.
I would call my ET nurse, but my surgery is Friday, I probably couldn't even get in to see her until then.
WAHHHH. I want this to be all over.
If at first you do not succeed, then skydiving is surely not meant for you.
