Hi I have a couple of questions, can anyone tell me what the xray is called that you have to make sure your bowel is not leaking (before an ileostomy reversal) and what to expect when i go in for it, the lady that rang was unsure if i had to fast of what ? I then hopefully will go in for an ileostomy reversal, I keep hearing a lot of horror stories about
incontinence and pain, can anyone tell me a little of what to expect, i understand everyone is different, maybe I am just looking for reassurance, I have had my ileo for 5 months and am hoping to have it reversed before Christmas, but with the health cuts I am concerned I will be put on a waiting list and have to wait years, anyway lets be positive and say it is done by Dec 2011, can anyone give me a little of what to expect and is it harder if you have to have the ileo longer ?
