Bless your heart you have been through a lot. I will pray that you get to feeling better soon. It's a day to day process. Every day brings a new adventure. My colon ruptured due to diverticulitis. I didn't know that I had it. I always had problems going to the bathroom. It would alternate with constipation and diarrhea. My doctors told me that if I had always been doing that it was probably normal for me. They said that even with this surgery, I still won't be regulated. I need to increase my fiber.
For the original surgery I had a morphine pump. You could press it every six minutes for a certain amount of time. If you fell asleep and woke up in pain it took a while to get back under control. With the morphine I kept having weird feelings and dreams. Some of the strangest things seemed so real. My family would look at me and say "you are really out there"....
I've read stories about people having problems with diarrhea after the reversal. Do you find it harder to make it to the bathroom? I heard it takes a while for your body to re-adjust to going back to normal. Did you loose a lot of weight with your surgeries? On my first surgery, I didn't loose a lot of weight, about 12lbs. But my doctor kept doing blood test on me every day and each day he kept thinking that they might put a nutrition tube in my neck....also my blood count was down and he thought he was going to have to give me a blood transfusion. Finally he was satisfied with my results and he didn't do either one. It scares me to think that he might have to do either one of those during the reversal.
Good luck with your recovery
