My main issue upsetting me at the moment is the whole issue with the ability to get pregnant. I am 25 and not at the stage of thinking of children imminently but I would absolutely love to have them when I settle down with someone.
I knew before my surgery that getting pregnant might be very difficult for me due to scar tissue etc. A few days after having my colon removed/temp ileostomy/internal pouch construction I was told in hospital that things 'change' down there and that the vagina can change position etc. I have definitely discovered this to be the case within days after surgery as inserting/removing a tampon is a totally different 'direction' to what it used to be, it is also often extremely painful. I am concerned that this is a sign that things have changed to a point where it is a sign that things really will be difficult to conceive. If things have changed alot 'down there' does that mean its highly likely that I have a lot of scar tissue round that area too?
Maybe I'm thinking too much into this, but any thoughts are welcome :)
