I was wondering if any of u that have had the reversal ever passed staples.  I had my reversal then a year later ended up with an ileostomy again due to obstruction and major surgery.  I still pass some blood and mucous and at times noticed staples when I wipe..(ewww, sorry for the details).  Just want to know if this sounds normal.
