my third ostomy



Hi everyone it has been a long time since I have been on this site. I got my first ostomy in Aug of 2010 about a year later it died and I needed a new one the second one got a hernia in it so I have been in and out of the hospital for about a year or so. I am now on my third ostomy and they moved it to the left side of my body I am not happy with this one it is much shorter and I needed a whole new appliance. I also have 10 stitches in my stomach from the hernia and they sewed my butt. I have been home recovering for about 7 weeks I am not comfortable with this bag but they say it works. For me it does not I have had too many accidents all in a period of seven weeks.


Hi mothermary :), It seems you've had a hard time of it, I'm glad you've found O'land, it will be great to get to know you better.

You have actually posted in the worst place for anyone to see your post and reply to you :), I will see if I can jolly up someone who can shift your post to were it can be seen. In the mean time, don't think you are ignored, its that they cant see you (sort of !)

Talk again soon

I have had two ostomies  and 3 hernia surgeries (going in to #4 soon!) I have a few scars that go from above my belly button down to my pelvic bone. Supplies are a pain and the retired ostomy scars are inconvenient. The 'Barbie/ken butt' surgery is still strange and hard to adjust to.


I hope things are improving for you!
