I had my reversal 2 and a half months ago. Everything went well.
After the reversal, I don't know why, but my surgeon decided to close the whole wound and that caused infection. But everything went fine. I took meds and they opened the wound, cleaned it, and let it close itself. Of course, I had to change the dressing every day, but now it's fully closed.
Recently, I experienced something weird in the place where the stoma was. I started to feel like something liquid was going out of it, but there's nothing! I feel like it's under my skin and it's different every day from the previous days. Sometimes I feel like something is itching, and sometimes I experience a feeling like my muscles stretch. But there is no pain, no fever, and trips to the toilet are very good.
I had my stoma due to inflammation in my small bowels caused by Crohn's disease, which is something they're not sure about. I never had pain in my stomach, I never experienced blood in my stool. All I know is that I drank cold coffee while the weather was freezing, and later that day I got a fever. I went to the ER, they did a colonoscopy, and boom, "you have Crohn's since a long time ago, but there are no symptoms and we are not sure if you have it or not."
