Re: Please help! ileostomy reversed Dr now wants Perm Colost

Yes that was kinda my surgeons speech. Ones a bigger surgery... However I get that but is the outcome and quality of life better? Frustrated as I don't know... You would think the surgeons could give us more direction.

Re: Please help! ileostomy reversed Dr now wants Perm Colost

Thank you all for your time advice and replys! My surgeon moved my surgery date back to April 30th from the 16th so that I would be able to get in 30 Hyperbaric treatments. I have been going two times daily and he is in hopes that it will diminish all of the scar tissue caused by radiation so that h...

Re: Please help! ileostomy reversed Dr now wants Perm Colost

Ok I'm back one last time :) I made the final decision yesterday with my surgeon to go with a permanent Ostomy! Whew! Now that I've made that decision I feel 100% confident in it and I know it's the best decision for me. Funny enough my surgeon even agrees. He said he doubts with as low as he had to...

Re: 1st Post treatment PET scan results- What does this mean

Ok..."breathing" ;) Your so right! They can totally be nothing. Just a reactive node. I think I was just looking forward to hearing " Your scan is clean" that this news seemed huge and scary when in reality it's just another node. I did some reading and it is possible for this to...

Re: Please help! ileostomy reversed Dr now wants Perm Colost

Belle, I was just reading through these comments and noticed the gal above my last post. Her comment, AI. She said something about having 6 pounds of her insides removed which I'm assuming was all of the guts of what makes us. Normally when she had her colostomy bag attached. It sounds like from wha...

Re: Please help! ileostomy reversed Dr now wants Perm Colost

I agree I am very early into this, only 6 weeks. My doctor did say time could be on my side, however he did confirm he went lower than he probably should have. He said he's never gone so low before. I have tried an enema 3 times," i enima'd daily prior to getting cancer." Because my anasta...
