so i had my colonoscopy on yesterday. turns out im not getting n e better, theyr thinking about removing my anus...I guess that means sewing it shut? n e way, i dont think im going to do that. I dont see the point if its not giving me n e problems. But this is his suggestion: a sub protolectomy ?(sp) i can't really read his writing. and a colostomy.
So here are my questions:
are colostomy's reversable?
has n e one had both?
so that I could get some type of comparison? my doc said colostomy is easier to handle, but i dont understand how. I always assumed the colostomy waste is thicker, and therefore harder to be discreet with b/c it would show. Also, the smell....isnt it horrible? do people smell it?
do u have to have open surgery with a colostomy? or are they still able to be done laproscopically?
which do u prefer? ur ileostomy or colostomy?
im so disappointed in everything, i dont know what to do...this was supposed to be a 6month process, now theyr talking life...its pretty hard to digest
