Reversal Success!

Oct 25, 2022 2:38 pm

I had my reversal September 9. I am so happy! Saw my doctor yesterday... I have been released... Yup, I can start working out, go in the jacuzzi... no limitations- just listen to my body.

Although I still have too many bowel movements a day so she said to take Imodium before every meal. So we'll see as far as that!
But let me tell you I do not miss Humpty!

Very happy to hear it went well for you!!!

You had an ileostomy, right? For how long? I will also have mine reversed at some point, hopefully in 3 months.

Congratulations. I had a reversal then suffered for years before deciding what the heck, give me my stoma back. Lol. Take it slow, please, and don't overdo yourself.
