 I went to the GI doctor and had a good talk with him and decided to stick with having the ileostomy revised and play it safe. Guess you can have alot if problems from what I have seen on healing well.The GI doctor was telling all the problem most of the people have after there hooked back up.
 I will have it revised next Friday and it will be alot easier on me in the long run. Just want to get healed and everything working right and getting on with my life.
 For the past year and a half I have stayed home and the only place I have gone is to the Doctor or was in the hospital. Hope to change this and start doing things. I have felt like a shell this past year and I do hope to change this.
 My husband has been really good and loving threw this whole thing and I hope our live will get back to normal soon.
 This has sure been a lonly life and verry sad.The old me was alway on the go doing something and verry happy go lucky.
 Sorry to keep runing on and on.
  Thanks for lessing to me, Jan,
