Being reversed tomorrow

Posted by currentsitguy, on Tue Jan 21, 2020 7:46 pm

Well, after 15 or so months I've finally reached the point where we can undo this. I had terrible diverticulitis, the surgeon said is was "fistulas everwhere". I had a double coloscopy (both ends) about a month back and everything checks out A-OK in terms for my healing.


I'm a little concerned about potential trouble, but she assures me she forsees no post surgical trouble and that I should expect to be "back to normal" in a short period of time.


I'll log in from my hospital bed and update.

adding my best wishes for a speedy recovery. I had my ileostomy reversed last May. It takes time and everyone's different. I had cancer was very low so I lost most of my recturm so it's been a lot of Imodium and Lomotil. However, it's a great milestone.  Best of luck!!!
