Hi y'all! My reversal surgery is set for March 9!! YIPPEE!! I am so thankful for this board and all of my "ostofriends" here. I don't know what I would do without you! If not for this Forum, I would be going into this surgery terrified and now knowing what to expect, but thanks to all of your candid sharing, I feel I am pretty well prepared for it. Thank you!!
Diagnosed IBS 2000
Vaginal Prolapse Surgery 2001
3 Hernia Repairs, 2004
Repeat Vaginal Prolapse Surgery 2006 (the mesh from previous prolapse surgery had let go and fallen into my bowels)...
Removal of mesh from bowels (it was piercing holes all through my bowels and appendix and cecum, causing 2 fistulas and heavy bleeding vaginally and rectally)...mesh was removed, two pieces of large bowel removed and resectioned with a loop ileostomy. 2008
I have underlying connective tissue disorder (Ehlers Danloss Syndrome) which is the reason for the two failed surgeries)
Reversal surgery scheduled for end of March/09
