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

I'm a little concerned about potential trouble, but she assures me she foresees 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.

Morning glory

Wishing you well.

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, so I lost most of my rectum, so it's been a lot of Imodium and Lomotil. However, it's a great milestone. Best of luck!!!
