Dude. I wrote a HUGE story, with all my takedown experience detailed, and then the site kept telling me I coudln't post it. I tried going back to copy it, but of course it was gone. :( I'll write it all out again later, but for now I'll just say hi again!
In short, I am home and feeling great! So far I have complete control, no leaking. I feel terrific!
Anyone who is having a takedown in the future, if you have questions, let me know!
If at first you do not succeed, then skydiving is surely not meant for you.

Jo, I'm sooooo glad you're home and doing well! What an encouragement you are to everyone who is scheduled to have (or thinking about having) this surgery. I can't wait to hear the whole story. Take it easy, get plenty of rest, and enjoy having your hubby wait on you! smilewinkgrin


Dx'd Crohn's in '99 at 28. Proctocolectomy and ileostomy in '06.
Disease-free, medicine-free, and very thankful to be healthy again :)
