Hello! Don't mean to frighten any newbies or worry Chris ;), but some of you know how long and hard a journey I've had and it gets so frustrating sometimes. The ultrasound results on my bladder & kidneys showed no masses which is extremely good news, they are thinking now that I "probably" have a kidney stone stuck somewhere making me bleed & hurt. Oh well, what's a girl to do? I have to have surgery tomorrow because my stoma decided it wanted a big ol hernia as a playmate! Hopefully they can just do it laprascopic, but won't be sure until they get in there because of all the surgeries I've had there may be too much scar tissue. Hoping for the best!! It would feel so great to have surgery and leave the hospital the same day!!! Lots of love to you guys & send out special thoughts for me tomorrow around 8am central time. I'll post again as soon as I get home. The funny part is my hernia protrudes out further than my boobs LOL!!! Looks like I've got a third one a couple of sizes bigger than the other two!!! Just insane!!! HUGS

Oh my, you poor dear! I'm glad the source of the bleeding has been identified and that you can get everything fixed in one laprascopic procedure. I'm sorry you have to go through this, but your upbeat attitude will see you through. May all go well tomorrow. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I will have you in my thoughts and prayers. I am so glad that its not a cancer and that the kidney stone can be removed. Now that hernia wow, I hope that will get resolved also, and you will continue to heal. I wish you well, and let us know that your fine. Lori

You poor girl, it often seems like one thing after another I too have a colostomy (a lot of people here do not) and I believe hernias are not uncommon...just one more thing to keep us hoppin. You're in our thoughts and prayers.
