I had the ileostomy reversal 4 weeks ago and couldnt be happier now Im free from UC.
But, the one thing I couldnt wait for when it was all over is to be able to sleep on my front again. Maybe Im expecting to much to soon but I still can't. Im not in any pain the surgery went without complictions and the scar has healed perfectly. Its just really uncomfortable like Im laying on a rolled up sock.
Does anyone know if this is the way it will always be and Im not going to cause any harm.
Or could it be swelling and will it eventually go away.
Anyone else had this experience
I would really appreciate any advice. Lifebegins
