ze1dude.. Hello.  I had the reversal done in March of 2011.. Two weeks ago I had a temporary ileostomy made due to fistula.  I am waiting for the fistula to heal so I can have the drop down again.  I guess what I am trying to say is that I have had the stoma, drop down, stoma and will have another dropdown when I am fistula healed... (At least that's my plan.  I have had no problems with insurance coverage for any of my surgeries. )  It's a long journey we are on and sometimes the road is all uphill..but it does get better and I wish you much success with your reversal.  While it's not perfect, it's so nice to not worry about a bag and leakage and smell and .. well you know.  Take care and best of luck.  Jody
