Hi!  I haven't posted in awhile, but I always read the posts to try and keep up with everyone...I am having surgery on Monday for an abdominal hernia (where the stoma was)...he tried to repair it at the time of my reversal but didn't want to use any mesh in case it would stick to the bowels...Now he has to go in again and do a mesh repair.  The hernia is quire large now and seems to be the whole side of my abdomen...yuk!  It's painful.
My hubby just had two abominal hernias repaired on Wednesday.  We always joke about how we seem to always go through the same things together.  LOL   We will be quite the  couple trying to get around for a couple of weeks...
Have a great weekend everyone!! wink ....Cheryl
