Hope everyone is doing well. Started 2022 off not too well. Ended up in the emergency room for a bad blockage. That was one of the most painful things I ever went through. I'm going to need surgery for the hernia where the stoma was, now. I was wondering if any of you went through that and what I can expect as far as recovery time, and limitations after that. Just my thoughts and opinion here, but I am not too happy with the help after the jpouch three surgery with my doctors and all that. When I initially went for the consultation with the surgeon, he gave me his cell phone number and said to call anytime if I had any questions. I called the doctors office just asking for basic info on hernia repair and some questions so I could educate myself, then I was told I had to make an appointment, with a two-month waiting list to be able to get in to see the doc. Now it seems there is no time for questions and all that since I started having complications. Last March was the take down and the only issue I really ever had was very bad dehydration two times, and I took care of that issue hydrating myself constantly. Never had any blockage issues until the hernia started about two months ago. As far as the blockage now, I started eating smaller meals and all that. I'm really concerned about what to expect with the hernia repair now. Some feedback would be appreciated.
