One of the major problems I had with my u/c was that if I wanted to "pass gas" I had to go to the toilet, b/c it was never just air. So that increased my bathroom time, especially at night.
After you have the reversal, can you pass gas normally? Cause I'm still a very gassy girl with my bag, and I would hate to have to worry about that if I got reconnected.
