Diverticulitis, Burst Intestine, Colostomy Reversal

i recently wrote to see if anyone had experience with colostomy reversal. Thank you to those that replied. It was both informative and scary. I didnt mention that I had bouts of diverticulitis for several years that was always treated with antibiotics but in June ’16 I ended up in e.r. And only after several tests did they find the burst and do emergency surgery. I woke up with the colostomy, the big scar and a wound vac. I did have n home care for the wound 3x a week but not much on education of colostomy. I was given the Hollister snap on 2 piece and that’s what I’ve stayed with except I went to a smaller circumference of the plastic snap on ring as it was digging in stomach when I’m in sitting position. I usually wear a huge ace bandage that I call a “wrap” to go around the bag to cover up the disk outline. It’s hard sometimes if there’s output because it’s flattened out, but I have not had any leaks. The only reason I had any idea take down was any worse than first surgery because I had such fear and asked a lot of questions. I am still confused with the whole thing because what if I have the reversal and I get diverticulitis again. I asked if I had dietary restrictions like no nuts, seeds etc. but was told I could eat anything with the colostomy. That was the surgeon PA not a gastroenterologist. I don’t eat a lot of nuts and no popcorn. It is hard to edit this thing so I can only write from this line,I have pretty much eaten everything but Does wanyone know about diet and the nuts seeds thing with an ostomy? much eaten everything

Resiting Of Colostomy Stoma

Maybe facing resiting of colostomy stoma and just not sure how bad this is going to be.  Have had other problems through the many years I’ve had colostomy, and not looking forward to the idea of this.  Retracted and mishapened stoma along with recurrance of parasromal hernia causing episodes of leaking and blowouts.  Anyone who maybe has information on this condition could help would be appreciated.

Colostomy Bag Odor

Hello everyone it’s me again. I just wanted to share with you all something I tried. Going into my 3rd my bag really 😷 stinks so as I’m going to change it the next day because the adhesive itches so bad I out of the clear blue took the febreeze and sprayed on the back and front and low and behold can you believe it pretty much killed the smell. Have any of you tried this? I’m sitting here now and the bag is not stinking. Wow. Let me know if any one tried this🙂
