i was hoping for a month or 2 as i want to get on and enjoy the summer months.
been out of hospital 2weeks and ive had 4leaks (at home) not messy ones, just where its begun to leak at the sides and ive managed to fix it before it makes a right old mess. got an appt with surgeon 7th april to book the next one, but my wound has opened slightly and needs packing daily, so i doubt he'll do it til that heals over.
i had the op on 28th feb so im hoping may as the next one (fingers crossed) i dont mind having to go to the loo alot once the bag is removed, just want rid of it asap.
dont get me wrong, before the bag my life was completely different, i had UC for a year, no meds worked and i didnt really go out, then bowel perforated and then had a stoma and once healed i was out every week as i should, but now it just worries me that it'll leak when i go back to work or go out partying?!?!
23yrs old, UC for a year, now with temp bag after perforated bowel. ENJOYING LIFE FOR ONCE
