I have had a colostomy for 7 years due to a doctors negligence during childbirth and am wanting a reversal now because living with the expensive costs of colostomy supplies without adequate medical coverage has left me broke and frustrated. Plus I've had to deal with divorce debt. It saddens me that my life is so frustrating and would like to hear from others if they have had positive results from reversals as well as comments about how possible is it to get a reversal after all these years? I have seen a surgeon but have to go through tests next month but despite the results I still want surgery no matter what but wonder if I would be worse off. Hard to know until it happens. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
