What a releif to find this site. I wish I would have found it months ago. I have people that have been in my life for years that don't know about my condition as I didnt know how to tell them or talk about it without sounding like I was looking for sympathy.
What a great place to find. A place where not only are people open about it, they have a laugh or two as well.

I had an emergency ileostomy on May 24 of 2011. I had it reversed almost 9 months later on February 21, 2012. I had no idea what to expect as far as the reversal, and a search for that information led me to this site. The reversal seems to have been successful, with the only lingering side effects being some numbness and neuropathy in my feet and hands from the emergency surgery.
