Hi all, this site is great. I got my temp. loop ileo in may because my hernia operations wen bad. I got it because my dr didn't catch the infection in my small testing and they cut 1.5 feet of it. I have to wait until january for the reversal but my new dr says it should be ok. I am not at a top 10 hospital so I feel somewhat positive. Had abwound vac and now it's off my wound should be healed in 2 months.

I can't wait o get back into shape so ican run the Disney world & lad marathons. Oh, I have to get the origional hernia fixed again and the new one that formed because of an infection.

My dr says the reversal should be fine but I still get worried. The origional dr said the loop ileo wil be a piece of cake but I'm still stressing.

It's also strange to have the feeling have to go to the bathroom but only go a small amount every few weeks. Is it a good sign that I can go even a small bit?

I'm confused. Are you saying that poop only comes out of your bottom every few weeks or your loop ileo stoma?

poop backsliding back down into the colon and rectum can happen if you have a loop ileostomy.

Rosemary PS Hope all goes well for you.
