good for you bev!  i have an appt with my surgeon tomorrow and will be asking about my reversal as well!  i had my j pounch on oct 5 and he said 6-8 weeks.  well, today is 4 weeks and i am hoping for 6 weeks to the day!!!!  we will see what happens.  what test did you have done to decide if your insides were healed??  and how long before your doc could view the results?  just wondering...
