Thank you for your respones.
Despite the 2 years of having "the bag" ,I have not been able to adapt to the ileostomy.
Having lupus, the bag erodes my skin,and I have not had the success of like others with it.
The reversal is scary because the 1st surgery I coded and was on the vent x 2 mos.(later to find out I was
missing several sutures at site of where they connected my small bowel causing me to become septic
and bleeding out).I was givin last rites.
Karen it is a war with my immune systerm and the bag,my body won't get onboard.
I really appreciate the support,
I feel alone and scared in the medical nightmare/dilema .
