Okay I've kind of been trying to avoid this topic! But I need to face the possibilty so that I am prepared if it does happen. Due to the location of the tumor in my colon, the surgeon may need to give me a reversible colostomy. Has anyone had one and if so what does it entail? Cleaning and what not. Also is the second surgery as bad as the original? Thanks again everyone.
Thanks hun, that means a lot! I am sure everything will work out fine, but it is a possibilty and I prefer to be prepared for worse case. Good luck on your colonoscopy and hope you find your answers soon.
