I had take down surgery


Have any of you had a takedown ( reconnection)? Any problems that may arise? I have been recuperating however with abscess and infection after surgery. I always worry that my connection may open and leak. My doctor states unlikely. Anyone have any experience on this topic? It’s been 5 weeks since my surgery. Thank you

Hi Jackie,  Your profile doesn't say whether you have a colostomy or an ileostomy, and that will make a big difference in your chances of a successful reversal.  People with colostomies have a better chance, and fewer possible complications.  If you look up member 'elldubuque', she recently had a reversal, and has been writing about her post-surgery journey.



I don’t have premium thus I cannot locate the person/ member or message them or see their posts. I had a colostomy . I was not aware one had better chances.

I wish this site would offer more information to non premium members. Thanks.
