Hope all went well with your surgery...
I am in a very similiar situation myself right now,
and if possible would appreciate any feedback or
helpful information from you, I also want you to know
your post has given me peace of mind, and I thank you
more than words can say. I have searched and read
for the last year trying to find if any other woman
had gone through this same procedure with the
We must be 2:1,000,000.
I am 46 also, and have had my ileostomy since 2000. I
am scheduled for a complete hysterectomy this month.
I also had numerous abdominal surgeries prior to my permanent
ileostomy, 3 c-sections, fibroids, lots of scar tissue and now
two large unidentified masses, the deal breakers! Surgery is now a must.
I am a positive thinker, ready to have my life back, apprehensive about what might be in there, but ready for surgery to get it out,
and start the recovery stage....I bet that is where you are now.
If your not ready to reply. I understand.....but would be
honored and accept anything you would care to share with me.
I've never joined a forum, or replied to posts until today.
Thanks for the inspiration
