i know its been a long time since iv written, but i check in often. just finally working with my career( teaching) and the long hours and everything has kept me extremely busy. N e way, the bag hasn't given me many problems and i havent been to my surgeon or my g.i. since september. but i have some questions.
While the bag hasnt given me any really serious problems, being only 26 and unmarried, it is really starting to effect me emotionally. in most cases im fine, but i always seem to sabotage any type of relationships that are possible b/c i am just too insecure, physically and emotionally.
So i'm wondering, how may of u had ur bags due to crohns and fistuals? and have had it reversed? is the recovery worse? is the chance of getting really sick again really high? will i loose my quality of life again i think im ready to get rid of it? and since i have summers off, i was considering asking for it.
Also, if i got it reversed and couldnt handle it, would i still be able to get another temporary one?
N e experiences would be greatly appreciated. thanx guys for all ur support. i hope everyone is doing well!
