I have been in the background lately after having a reversal of Ileostomy 7 weeks ago. I can’t believe this journey started nearly a year ago and the help and support I have had on here has been a godsend to me and the family. Now I need help again...... I have developed a recto vaginal fistula! CT yesterday and saw Surgeon. The plan is.... MRI next week, hospital admission on @7th for examination under anaesthetic and proceed to close fistula which will mean another Stoma while wound heals. I am so scared, I was still after the reversal, I had a GI bleed and then an Ileus. When I had the Stoma (Twinkle), life wasn’t too bad, I coped ok. I now have to make a decision whether to have the Stoma temporary or permanent. Anyone else been in this situation? Love to all.
