HI EVERYONE.  I'M WAITING FOR MY DR. TO CALL AND LET ME KNOW THE RESULTS OF MY EXTREMELY FUN BARRIUM ENEMA TEST.  IF EVERYTHING LOOKED HEALED AND WORKING PROPERLY THEN I WAS GOING FOR MY REVERSAL AFTER 10 WEEKS WITH MY ILEOSTOMY.  NEXT TUESDAY WILL BE TEN WEEKS.  I'M EXCITED BUT REALLY NERVOUS.  I JUST HOPE EVERYTHING GOES WELL AND I FEEL GOOD.  I'M NOT EXPECTING A MIRACLE BUT ANYTHING IS BETTER THAN THE EXCRUTIATING PAIN DUE TO CROHN'S DISEASE.  I HAD A FOOT OF MY SMALL INTESTINE REMOVED.  THE GOOD THING IS THAT WAS THE ONLY PLACE THAT I HAVE CROHN'S EXCEPT IN MY RECTUM BUT IT'S NOT ACTIVE. HOPEFULLY IT STAYS THAT WAY.  ANYBODY HAD AN ILEOSTOMY REVERSAL AND FEEL LIKE THEY MADE THE RIGHT DESICION?  I REALLY LOVE HOW I FEEL NOW WITH THE OSTOMY BUT I NEED TO GET RID OF THIS BAG.  MY SKIN LOOKS HORRIBLE AND I HAVE AN INCREDIBLE ITCH AFTER THREE DAYS THAT I HAVE TO CHANGE THE WHOLE APPLIANCE JUST SO I CAN SCRATCH THE SKIN.  I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF THE BAG.  EVEN THOUGH IT HAS BEEN A GODSEND IT'S ALSO A CURSE.  THANKS FOR LISTENING TO ME VENT AND IF ANYONE HAS ANY ADVICE I'D LOVE TO HEAR IT.
