He took the time to explain to me about my colostomy and what will happen during my reversal.....he talked face to face with me for an hour and 15 minutes.....I loved him....he was straightforward and very informative and anwsered every ? we had.....I am feeling cautiously optomistic my reversal will work....He said he would work on me like I wsa his daughter and i so believe him.....He also made no promises it would work because of the partinitus......He said my hair falling out was from teh stress of the surgery and all the medicines...Just as each of u told me.....He said my body needs to be healthy as possible.....Walk and drink lots of water and eat heathy like you would if you were pregnant....Dont lose an pound......and dont gain an ozpound.....He told me it was harder on patients between the time of the reversal than when they know they cant be reversed.....I dont know if thats the case.....I just feel in limbo...Im sorry i dont mean to complain...Thanks again for the advice and

He sounds like a very caring doctor, and you're lucky to have found him. It sounds like you're in good hands for your reversal surgery. Rogaine for Women helped me when my hair was falling out when I was sick and was taking lots of meds.

Dx'd Crohn's in '99 at 28. Proctocolectomy and ileostomy in '06.
Disease-free, medicine-free, and very thankful to be healthy again.
