Surgeon called and is hoping to reverse ileostomy in a couple of weeks. Had several fluroscopy tests this week that showed the fistula wasn't totally healed yet. He is hoping it is healed enough to do the surgery though. Have I mentioned that in chances of the unforeseen, I tend to run in the less than 1% area. So he plans on really monitoring in the hospital for a while afterward. I'm hoping this can be done and hopefully will help to clear up all the digestive/nausea problems, too.
Another surgery is probably imminent to repair prolapses which the mesh material was removed due to infection. Some sort of somthing or other with the name bridge in it....
Just keeping my fingers crossed. I want to say too that this has been such a helpful site. I wished I'd found it from the very beginning & even before for other things I deal with.
God Bless to all.
