Depends on your starting point. It might be closing of the temporary stoma. It might be excision of the j-pouch. Reversal is a horrible way of describing it either way.

It is also called take down. After you have your surgery to remove your colon and form your pouch, after a few months you have a surgery to hook everything up and get rid of the ostomy. It's a fairly easy surgery compared to the others.
Diagnosed 2006. 1st step of 2 step j-pouch 1/3/11. 2nd step April 4, 2011. So done with this disease.
