Had Total colectomy with IRA 5 yrs ago. It stopped working. Now have had an Ileostomy since Oct 2009. Hopefully I am going to get it reversed some day. We'll see!!!!
Got ileostmy reversed in April 2010! I thought it would be a great relief but it isn't. Don't get me wrong it has its perks not having to wear the bag, but m bowel problems still exist. The only reason i got it reversed was because my body wasn't adapting to stomach kept getting dspasms in return causing blockages (even when I didn't eat the spasms would cause blockage alone). I am having a very hard time... i cry every night, am having a very hard time adjusting back to work, I still don't have that stamina back!! And my jerk of a husband still a jerk!!! I pray everyday that things will get better....
