I just had my ileostomy reversal done on 9/15/06 and my recovery is going well. I know the recovery time for each person may vary. I am currently going to the restroom 4-6/day and I haven't had any constipation. I know there is some medicine out there that can help reduce the amount of times you move your bowels. Maybe you can ask your doctor about it. Good Luck!!!
