hey yall... i am 16y/o and i have cystic fibrosis which has caused several bowl obstructions,so that led me to have an ileostomy. i've had my ostomy for 1.5 years and next monday on the 17th i am having it reversed. I am so nervous and i was wondering if any of you can tell me how long it will talk and if i will be in much pain.
please write back as soon as possible. i am so nervous!
 
thanks

Hello Ashley,

My name is Shannon and I'm 30 but have had my Ileostomy since I was 28. I actually had the Colostomy first at 27 yrs. and had it for 6 months, then like you had my reversal, but unfortunately in my case it didn't work out very well and 2 months later I ended up with the Ileostomy instead. Long story short, your not alone out there being a young woman with a bag. It's hard I know and I so pray that when you get back from the hospital that everything went well and that your healthy and recovering nicely. If you ever need to talk just give a shout out. I'm new here too. Wishing you nothing but the best. :-)

hi shannon,
thank you 4 replying to me... i had my surgery and everything went well! i am going home tomorrow! i have to follow up with my surgeon in 3 weeks. He was very suprised at how well i recovered from the surgery! i was in the intensive care unit (ICU) for a day and a half, and then i moved to a regular room. but i hope that everything is going good with you as well!

i wish you the best

Ashley-

I just wanted to say how great I think it is that your reversal went well.  I pray that things will just continue to get better and better for you!  You sound like a really positive person, and your good news just made me smile!
