My surgeon also left the decision up to me. I have opted to wait. In my case, there is no harm in waiting. You have seriously been through a lot, it might behoove you to regain stamina, not only physically, but this stuff takes a toll on us mentally as well. It sounds like you have only been "well" for six months....at home at least. It's such a personal decision of what you are willing to put up with.
I had complications with my surgery, had the picc line, etc. etc. and there is no way I want to go through that nonsense anytime soon. However, you might get some good input from people who have had the reversal. Best Wishes, whatever you decide.
