Hey, Im erin. this is my first time in this site so bare w me folks. okay, i am writing this in the hospital actually waiting to get surgery in Ontario. (I live in Atlantic Canada). anyway, the surgery is actually to remove my rectum and i REALLY dont want it done. the prob is, i have been practically liviing in the hospital for two years (i am 23 yrs old) and while all my friends are moving on w their lives, graduating and getting jobs and travelling, well, i am stuck doing NOTHING here.
i was just wondering two things, um, well, i am really having a rough time dealing w things, especially when i found out that my ostomy was perminent. i have kinda fell into a depression. i dont see myself as a true 'woman' or something. i am paranoid to date. i was just wondering if anybody had advice on getting over the whole self-image issue....
my other ques is, after getting the rectum removed, is it possible in ANY way to reverse this sucker?
okay, thanks for reading.
