I didnt drink after my first op purely because I felt my body had been through so much with the UC then the major op, I didnt want to cause any more problems with drink. I never asked my doctor due to the decision I made myself, maybe you should ask your doctor if your not sure.
I had the reversal op 8 weeks ago now but still havent had a drink. Im seeing my surgeon on Friday for a check up so I will ask him for advise where I am concerned.
Please forgive me for being so curious. My husband had his first ileostomy (he has had 4) at the age of 27, he is now about to turn 53. He and I both were wondering how this is done, not to mention wondering if he could be a candidate for a reversal? He has gone for approximately 20 yrs. with no flair ups.
