      Check all advice with your medical team! Plus, quoting medical sources (HON code requirement)   08/25/2015

      Here at Ostomyland we are a patient run community - meaning we have learnt what we know as a result of being the patient and 99% of our members have got no medical qualifications whatsoever, and so any support replies are usually based on personal experience or friends/family-members personal experience. As a result Ostomyland strongly recommend that all members should check the accuracy of any support/health advice they have been given here with a member of their own medical team (GP, ET/Stoma Nurse/ Surgeon etc) BEFORE acting on it. This is for your own safety, as all our bodies are very different, and what works for one might not for the other, and for another it might even be dangerous! Ostomyland is not responsible for the content of the posts made, each member is responsible for their own posts. So if you ever did get any duff advice (unlikely, but could happen one day....) then blame the person who posted the message, and not Ostomyland. We are proud to be HON code certified and work very hard to meet the requirements of their principles. As such, and as requested under principle 4 of the HON code guidelines we must ask that members of the forums please quote sources for any medical information they give which is not based on personal experience.   Thanks.

Healing completed

2 posts in this topic

It sure has been a journey but one I would never take back. A learning experience I wouldn't have otherwise.

I am now completely healed. No more bandages or returning to the doctor. No need to see a specialist! That's a relief! I do have some burning pain under the scarring where the ileostomy was but I believe that is part of the healing.

As you can see, I am staying around. You all helped me a bunch during my crisis and it's the least I can do to be around to help others. I'm trying to get a support group for people in my area started to help with ostomys in general. Will keep you updated with that progress.

Thanks for your help!!
