Hello Angelicamarie.

Thanks or drawing this to our attention. I have replied on your blog even though, like yourself, I have not had direct personal experience of a reversal.

What I have found is that I can learn a great deal from other people's posts and one of the great sources of useful information on most ostomy related subjects  can be obtained through the 'collections' section. I often browse through these old posts to learn as much as I can about different aspects of ostomy life and it can be particularly helpful to people like Sean who asked his question on your post, which might mean that he might not get  as many replies as he would if he posted a separarate, specific post of his own. The other thing about his question is that it involves reversals. So many of the people whose reversals were successful and could be most helpful to him may well not be visiting this site anymore. The old posts can be very useful in capturing what folks have to say about subjects before they move on to live their lives without the problems.

best wishes

Sorry, I have no idea how to read your blog, but I understand that congratulations may be in order for a reversal?

I was just reversed about 3 weeks ago and it has been successful. If there are any questions I can answer don't hesitate to ask.
