I want to wish you the best. So you have a colostomy bag and they are reattaching the colon back together? Sending best wishes and positive vibes.

Hey Kimlin!  That's great news!!  I'm happy things went well for you.  When I first came home from hospital after my reversal I couldn't get things moving either.  I walked and walked and drank lots of hot tea.  Nada. I finally felt so miserable I took a dose of Milk of Magnesia and that got things moving.  Then I was on to the prune juice.  It worked great but it's too sweet for me.. rolleyes So now I use ground flax seed and it is the most amazing stuff! I have always had problems with constipation so I make sure I get my daily of flax!..... Congrats on your reversal!!!......Cheryl yeah
