my name is Lorraine. I am 56 years young. I am awaiting surgery. I have a transverse bowel stricture caused by diverticula. I have a sigmoid diverticula too, also on that site,left side my ovary is stuck by 3 1\2 cm. To my bowel. My right ovary has a timer on it. I will be having 2 surgeons on the day of the operation. One for the bowel and the other for my ovaries. I will also be having a wall tightened. Don't know the name of wall.
I am a bit nervous now while I am waiting in case the stricture blocks altogether. I have no date for surgery yet. Just been told to go to the emergency if it blocks. Hope I recognise the symptoms.I am having a bowel restriction and the ovaries removed and anything else that needs reparing. Will have the colostomy bag for life.
thank you for accepting me to this site.
