hello and welcome to the ostomie forum!! I just had a look at ur post and you seem very confused. I have had my ileostomy for 8yrs now and for me it was the best and only outcome. But from what ur saying about
the posibility of having ibs may change ur mind about
the surgery. I would suggest you really talk it out with ur surgeon and also i agree that maybe you might try some medication first then think about
the next step.I agree with SocalJohn about
the med's to!! Hope this help's you some..
