Hopefully if all goes well, I will have my Ileostomy reversay surgery tomorrow. I'm excited but a little nervous about the J-Pouch. Hopefully it will go as well as everything has so far. Then more Chemo after I heal up.

I had a reversal after a year with an ilestomy. It was a bit challenging at first, but you do find a new normal.
Good luck on your surgery---all should go well...you've come this far, right? :)

I had a reversal after I had my ileostomy loop for a 11 months just six weeks ago. I have adjusted really well. I had a straight connect instead of the J-Pouch. All surgeons are different so you will get good advice from your surgeon for your situation. It was my 5th surgery in a year and I will say this one was a breeze compared to the others. Best of luck to you!!

wishes for your surgery!!!

My husband had reversal in June. The first weeks were not easy as he had to "run" for about 20 times a day. Now, after some months, he has adapted really well and ist "down" to 4-5 toilet visits a day which concentrate on the morning and evening hours. That is really managable.

Thinking of you and sending a big HUG from Germany
