Underwent surgery in August 2020...currently living with “the bag” aka “Seymour” and trying to decide if I want a reversal..... was scheduled to have reversal then had a “mild heart attack” setback....currently I am feeling that I have “failure to thrive” and trying to gain weight. Seems these docs are anxious to move forward ... me, not so much. At one point last fall I could hardly wait for reversal. Now, I am learning to live with Seymour.....and at my age mayhaps I will live with it til ‘ death do us part.

Just wanting to read comments and input from folks who live with a similar situation/experience.
