I went to the web site you suggested, and OMG...I was so amazed at this surgery. I want one like right now today!!! How did you go about sceduling one, or seeing if you were a candidate for this surgery? I had an ileostomy placed in me the end of April, they say it was permanent, but I have since seen another surgeon who said as long as there is enough colon and small bowel he could reverse it. I know I have enough of both, so that is not an issue. I'm going to call that Susan tomorrow to get the video, and more information, but I live in Wisconsin, and Im wondering if maybe another hospital around us might do this type of surgery. We have some awesome colon surgeons around here, and I think tomorrow at my apt I will bring in whatever info I can find on the web for mine to read. Did you need a referal in order to see a Doc at this hospital? Did you have to go through a bunch of tests? Can they make all the plans besides the actualy surgery via phone and fax? You may not have all the answers, and I know time is running out before you leave for your surgery, but I just wanted to ask. If you have any information for me, I would be so very appreciative for it. Thank-You in advance!!And congratulations on taking control of your life, you are very brave, and I applaud you for this!!!
