Ileostomy - dannerca

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Colorectal (Colon) Cancer. Posted on November 5, 2012 View this journey (12 Experiences)

Oct 20th 2011 I had the ileostomy reversal done. The surgery was only 3 hrs, the hospital stay was 4 days. The reversal has alot of effects on you mentally. You don't realize how much damage was done by radiation, till you actually try using your plumbing system again. At first alot of diarreha,of course from being disconnected so long you have to try make it to bathroom but rarely ever do. This gets a little better in time.
