My reversal surgery is coming up!

Posted by Inspired47, on Thu Feb 13, 2020 9:09 am

I got the great news yesterday that my ostomy reversal surgery is scheduled for March 10th!  Doctor said that I should be good as new in about 2 months after the surgery and my scar on my stomach

will fade.  I said "That's ok.  I'm excited to get my life back.  And you know what Evel Knievel says about scars?   "Bones heal, pain is temporary, and chicks dig scars!"

I remember counting the days down to when my first ostomy was reversed...  It'll go by too slow and then all of a sudden the days fly.

 

who needs tattoos when you have scars!?!

My wife is only half jokingly urging me to have a zipper tatooed down my scar!
