Hi everyone, well I finally had my ileo reversed on the 7th April all went well till the following monday when the drain was filling up with Poo,
had to go back down to theatre on the wednesday where the surgeon tried to stitch a tiny hole in the bowel
then last tuesday the drain started to fill again but not as much, the surgeon didn't want to put me through another operation so he put me on TPN to see if that helped to heal the hole which I think it has have had no drainage since thursday last week.i'm still on free fluids but hoping this will change when i see the docs tomorrow and hopefully will be able to get home for good by the end of the week feeling really well otherwise and so glad that i no longer have the bag to deal with.Hope your all doing ok will catch up on here when i get home.
