SO im really bummed about my results..ive only had my bag for 4 months but im ready to get my reversal over with before graduation in may..my surgeon said i should be able to schedule my surgery next time she sees me..which was wednesday. so i wake up from my dialation and my mom doesnt say anything about it so i asked her and she said im still bleeding from where she pulled my small intestines down to my rectum..that part is still healing. Im already connected I just dont poo out of my bum yet..just like mucus. and i was ok with not being ready yet but i was drugged up that i didnt care..but yesterday was the worst day ive had in a while! A few days ago i dropped my cell in a cup of pop ruined that phone and yesterday i dropped the other phone i had in the sink..FULL of water!! OMG mad then i had to go to work from 11-3 and my homeschool teacher was coming at 5 and i still had a week and a half of work to get caught up all by 5 so i ended up not working and coming home to do my hw and was up til 1 but im caught up now :-) and wierdly..it seems like when i stay up late and get up early i feel so much better that day. Anyone else like that?
Oh and on top of that..today my boyfriend and I have been dating for 3 years blush and were not doing anything =( that bums me out even more.
Im usually SO positive about having my ostomy but lately ive just been really disappointed and frustrated bc they keep telling me we can reverse it soon but they keep putting it off longer and longer.. im completely fine with keeping my bag longer..just dont get my hopes up and then let me down biiig time shakehead

Hang in there girl. I know the feeling.... back when I was having resections to get rid of my CD and had a temp ileo, I got the same "put off". But even though you are totally disappointed, remember that they are only doing it so you have a successful reconnect. It was hard for me to handle the disappointment too. And I was soooo negative at that time about the bag. Hmmm, here I am, 25 years later playing cheerleader! Vent all you want. We are here for ya.
