Sorry I don't have the answer to your husband hasn't had the original colostomy surgery yet.  I saw your signature said you're pain free and med free, why the reversal, if you don't mind my asking?

As long as you don't have a fever you should be fine, IMO.

Good luck with the surgery and keep us posted!
