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
