Hi! I am 9 days post-op from my reversal!! Congratulations!! OK- I do not have skin clips, I had 3 very loosley ties sutures that dissolved and my would is sort of open while it is healing. Almost healed totally!
You can have a bath 10 days post-op but with these skin clips you may want to verify that with your surgeon!
The pain....oh the pain!! The surgery is done by laproscope and that causes lots of swelling and gas type pain so what you are feeling is normal, plus i think until you guts get use to food again this will happen of and on.....it almost feels to me like the poop is dropping into the pouch and it hurts!!!!
i'm sorry i blabbed...i'm assuming you had a j-pouch?
