my Gi told me there was a surgery I could get to the bag taken off me. I have a permanant ileostomy with no rectum. Now when my Gi told me I needed the surgery he said it was permanant but now he's telling me I have a chance for a reversal. Anyone had a reversal without a rectum or has heard of this I would like to ask some questions. eyes eyes eyes

Yes, I had a reversal a few years ago following being told my ostomy was permanent.  It has not worked out for me.  I will answer any questions you have on my experience.

I had a Jpouch. I had to wear an ileostomie for three months. I thought the reversal would be easier than the original sugery. Iwas in alot of pain. I've had alot of complications with the Jpouch. Somedays I want my ileostomy back!

If you're not closed up in the rear end, the your surgeon maybe talking about the j pouch (http://www.j-pouch.org) where an internal pouch is made from your small intestine and you poop 'normally' via your anus.

Otherwise, he may be talking about a Kock's Pouch or a BCIR (Barnett's Continent Internal Reservoir) (http://www.bcirostomy.com) where you don't have to wear a bag. Instead you catheterise a tiny stoma a few times a day to empty the internal pouch. At all other times, you can cover the stoma with a small bandaid to protect it.

All of these procedures are NOT for those diagnosed with CD. Unfortunately, the Crohns can come back and affect the internal pouch thus necessitating it's removal and the removal of more, needed intestine.

Hope this helps :)

See this link for an explanation of the different types of ostomies available http://www.ostomates.org/ostomies.html
