I am happy I reversed. I lived well with my ileo, but I have UC, so the plan was always to get reversed. With Crohn's, you can risk the chance of getting inflammation in other areas, so a reversal isn't usually recommended, though, some people have gotten reversed and do well. Have you met with a colorectal surgeon to discuss options and recommendations? I think that would be the first step in figuring out whether reversal is a feasible option in your specific case. If it is, then the question of the pain comes into play. Why do you have pain with enemas? What are you doing enemas for? I do not have any pain but i didn't with my ileo either.
