Subject: [The Ileostomy Group] new to the group
Hello my name is Rose I am 28, will be 29 soon..I have had my ileostomy
since march....have not named my stoma yet, though, and I have seen some of
you have thats a very good idea..I am supposed to have a j pouch done
someday...they could not make it 1. because I was to sick when I had the
surgery, and 2. I am a very big person and my small intestine wouldnt
connect so I have to lose weight to finish my surgery...but now I have
gotten so used to my ileostomy that I might not want the j pouch because
visions of having a sort butt like I used to have seem horrific and running
to the bathroom!! yes, I still have other symtoms of UC such as dry skin,
sore joints once in a while, and a little fatigue. But the worst part
(running to the bathroom bloody stool and abdominal pain) are history!! and
I have never felt better in my life...
