Good Luck Bev, hope everything works out the way you hope it will. I understand the burnt skin and tummy pain and it ain't fun to say the least. Keep us posted on what's going on with you.

Omg, good luck to you Bev. My stoma leaked for the first time monday night, again wednesday night and then this (thursday) morning at my daughter's doctor appointment- nightmare!! My skin has broken down sooooo much the past 4 days and now it is really red and irritated! I am also hoping for a quicker reversal. We will see....

Hope all goes well and your reversal gets scheduled!

Wow, Bev, I'm so sorry to hear that you ended up in the hospital, but am glad you're gonna get the reversal done soon! You'll be dancing around the Christmas tree this year! :-)

I'm praying that the surgery goes perfectly.
