    Second surgery today to reverse my ileostomy. Looks like another 3-5 days in the hospital.

    My surgery was put off until January 9 due to surgeon/hospital conflicts. I will have a whole resection done and a colostomy put in. 8 weeks later, I will hopefully have the colostomy removed and the colon reattached. Then I will have chemo for 6 more months. Hope you have a Marry Christmas.

      You will do great. It has only taken me a week or so to get used to the ileostomy. I understand a colostomy is a bit easier. If I get any good tips on ostomy care, I will let you know!

    My first surgery is scheduled for January 2 and I am getting a little nervous. After losing my Dad to the same cancer, It doesn't help matters any. This is my second colon cancer diagnosis in 18 months. Happy New Year to me.
