I can't answer your question because I didn't have your experience but I can tell you of a number of people who had complications following these surgeries and were leery about doing the reversal for fear of more problems. However, all the people I know sailed through the reversal the second time around and this will probably be true with you too. It's sometimes hard to see the positive when we have experienced so much negative but keep the faith and trust your surgeon's experience.
