Ileostomy reversal coming up - what will be my new normal?
Hello all. I was diagnosed with stage 2 colorectal cancer 12/18/19 and had surgery 2/13/20. All cancer was removed. Yay! Left me with an ileostomy.
Now that I am cleared to have it reversed, I’m don’t know what to expect once it’s done. Most of my rectum was removed.
I hear stories of massive diarrhea to constipation. Am I going to be in diapers? Will I able to lead somewhat of a normal bathroom life?
I do not want to keep my ileostomy at all.
