thanks you guys. oh well... i'm ok, i think.... just so sick of drs being so rude and arrogant, i mean even the plumber when he comes to fix the plumbing he explains EVERYTHING to you, every detail..... but drs, they work on our BODIES, which is much more important, isn't it? and they just don't make the minimal effort to explain what's going on with OUR BODIES, too unacceptable! just can't help my self not being FURIOUS at them!!!! but hey, it's ok, i'm cool.... i sent my surgoen this question in his forum, asking properly and gracefully to just explain to me why my stoma has 2 holes and what kind of a stoma is it exactly that i have.
you're so right Cecilia, like you, all my knowlege, everything i know is thanks to this site and the wonderful ppl on it, i don't know what i would have done w/o this site and i thank G-D for finding it and you all :) :)
OHIO, yes it's a temp one in case i didn't like it, i can be reconnected easily, so i guess you're right, most likely it's a regular loop ileo. but you know, i don't ever want to be reversed, i feel SO MUCH BETTER with the bag, i can't even express in words how better i feel with it, so for me it's definitely perm. but how should i do it? should i just leave it this way? or should i at some point change it to an end ileo (or is the end loop better..???) does the end ileo/end loop ileo works better? will i be more comfortable with those than with the regular loop? i mean now there still can be stools reaching the rectum and i have real trouble expelling stools from my rectum.... maybe it's best for me to have the rectum disconnected completely, so i won't have to worry about
stools being stuck in there...????
there is a wonderful colorectal surgoen i know, that i can see only as a privat dr and have to pay lots to see him, but he REALLY EXPLAINS things to you (yeah, there are few, very few, diamonds like him here and there..), he's SO nice and empathetic and i wish he was my dr, but i can't afford him, but i can afford a consultation with him once in a while, so maybe i'll ask his opinion too about
thanks again guys, and sorry for all the rambling lol
