Not sure I'm following you (I confuse easily). If you had a reversal then you no longer have a stoma..........right? So are you asking how to heal the incision wound left from when they reconnected you? Also not sure what you mean by "pack with". If your stoma was put back inside and reconnected to your bowels then you should only have an incision wound......which should be treated like any other skin wound. Or am I totally missing what you're saying? I would think the gauze is simply to protect the staples or stitches, and maybe provide a bit of cushion if you happen to bump into something. But my take on external wounds is to keep them protected for a few days and then expose them to air as quickly as possible. You obviously don't want to expose the area to anything that could cause an infection, and keeping the area moist potentially helps with reducing the scaring.....but moist is a double edged sword......and I think at our age scars are pretty cool battle badges..........to be worn proudly. Anyone can get a tattoo. But a scar has to be earned! Anyway, I don't know if I answered your question even in the slightest amount. If I haven't.........sorry about that.
