I hope everyones had a great summer!!! THis is the first summer in 4 years that I have finally enjoyed since I was diagnosed with UC and then this past january had my colon removed!! I have a temp illiostomy and the surgeon wants to do a reversal but I am afraid!! I have a 4 year old and a 1 year old who needs me and this would be the first year not hospitalized! People who have had the reversal how long did it take you to gain control of your bowels and are you glad you gave the bag up for it???? Also I have had some cramping in my stomach that feels like spasm anyone ever experance this,, I have been drinking water and I have a normal output??? Well on the positive things I wents to water country and had a blast no problems with the bag even found a two piece bathing suit at filenes that worked great, also somethimes I just read what everyone writes but I don;t comment just like to read, want to thank who ever suggested tube they really came in handy for those initmate momments!!! Great!!! Well take care and hope everyone is doing well . My prayers and thoughts with those in the hopital!!!
