I had my ileo reversed on Nov 14, so it hasn't even be two full weeks since the surgery. I'm going to the bathroom 2, maybe 3, times a day. This seems too good to be true...is it? Or am I just lucky beyond belief?

If you are eating three regular meals a day and only going 2-3 times, I would be concerned.

Well, I'm not in any pain and that's how it's been pretty much since the surgery. I had a lot of gas pain in the first week so I was going around 6 times just to try to get to gas out. I have an appointment with my surgeon in a week, but I guess I'll email him and see what he says in the meantime. Thanks guys!

It's official, my surgeon is a miracle worker! He told me that as long as I'm not bloated, nauseous, or sick then I shouldn't worry.
