Reversal this Tuesday, March 10th!

Posted by Inspired47, on Sat Mar 07, 2020 5:25 pm

Excited and nervous about my reversal surgery this Tuesday.  Luckily I have one of the best doctors in the country performing my surgery.  My nervousness stems from my brutal emergency Hartmann procedure performed on me while I was on vacation in the Philippines last October when my diverticulitus ruptured.  I think it left me a little shell shocked.  Please send prayers and good vibes my way.  They really helped me

feel better after my last surgery.  Looking forward to getting back to my old healthy, strong (and somewhat handsome in the eyes of my mom) self.  If all goes well, I'll have some left over bags and ring adhesive thingies

if anyone is interested.  If I don't need them anymore, let me know if you need them and I'll send them free of charge.  Have a great weekend everyone

Charlie

Thanks so much Bob.  I'd love to get off the bag but I'm forever an ostomate now.  I'll always be here if anyone needs help and moral support.  Take care

Best of luck to you. I'm a month and about a week past my reversal, which was on Janyary 22nd. I'm sure you are anxious about what to expect. Have a look at my past posts. I tried to document what it was like. I also had an emergency Hartmann for diverticulitis. I can tell you right now I am almost back to "normal".

Good luck with the surgery, your young and healthy looking but take the time needed to recover.  prayers

Wishing you all the best with your surgery and a speedy recovery.  I go in tomorrow for my reversal.  Exactly as you I had a sudden unexpected ruptured diverticulitis and was shellshocked for weeks.

Feeling haunted as I did post into this thread. Bottom line is I ended up much like you and was just revered a moth ago. Look into my past posts as I tried to document the fisrt days. Any questions whatsoever, please ask.....

Must be going on right about now!  Best of luck to you, it's all healing now!

Yes, please, continue to visit.  People looking to reverse need some support, too.

Fingers crossed, candles lit, live chicken sacrificed... ;)
