I had my ileostomy reversed in December after 7 months. I am having problems with pain/burning/urgency to go/leakage. Having more bad days than good. Maybe it is too soon but nothing seems to be helping. I have tried numerous creams. nothing is stopping the burning. I do sitz baths which help but I have to do several a night. Dr doesnt want to give pain meds. He did say that I could have a Colostomy. Was wondering if that might be worth it. I didnt have any probles with the ileostomy and wanted to know from people who have the colostomy, how is it to live with. I liked the idea of not having the bag but not sure it is worth it now. I dont want to go thru this for a year and still end up have the colostomy.
Thanks for your thoughts.
