Ostomy Reversal


Hi all – five months ago I had to have an emergency colostomy due to diverticulitis and then developed an abcess in my leg which meant another surgery the next day.  I was septic and the doctors told my husband and son ” to prepare themselves”  I was in the hospital for l3 days and during that time was unconsious for about  a week.  Obviously the very worst thing that has even happened to me.  The doctor also told me later it was the worse case of diverticulitis he  has ever seen.  He said the reversal would be very complicated due to the amount of colon he  had to take out and because of all of the scarring in me.  He has referred me to a colon/rectal guy who lI see in a month.  Quite frankly I am terrified to go back into the hospital and  have surgery and maybe come out as I went in or worse.  Has anyone had a similiar situation.  Thank you so much!
