Glad to hear you are well.
Dont be scared. If you have a loop ileostomy (like me) then you are already joined inside arent you??
So therefore they just sew up the loop in the stoma and push it back inside you - takes around 40 mins i am told. Yeah i know what you mean about being scared and history repeating itself. i was sick and in bad pain for 3 days - but it was the combination of side effects of anathaesia and bowels waking up - not nice. try know to worry.
I am waiting for reversal too but you know what the NHS in UK is like. I expect i will get a letter around october time. doesnt bother me but i am also getting skin breakdown and itching even with convex - i am still nervous about putting bag on properly.
Anyhow i go to Turkey in 3 weeks which i can enjoy for the first time in 10 years. xxx
