I have just had my ileostomy reversed 7 weeks ago and I didn't know what questions to ask and didn't know what help I would need afterwards. I just thought great back to normal or at least continue the same as on ileostomy.
I now realise I should have asked for some counselling from a stoma nurse or an incontinence professional who are well equipt to tell you what you should know and how it will affect you.
They all say that what you can expect is different for everyone and that is true - we all have different lengths of large or small colon and other problems so no one is the same.
I am struggling to understand what is happening with my shortened large bowel and smaller small bowel, and would love to hear from anyone else who has a similar experience. 12-18 BMS and both constipation and diarrhoea and sore bottom after evening constant trips to loo.
Bye for now.
