    Hi carm,

    You responded to my question awhile ago regarding pelvic exenteration. I had it done 4 months ago and am now about to have the loop ileostomy that I got as a result of the surgery reversed. Do you know what the average recovery time is for the reversal is once released for the hospital. ( I also have a urostomy)

    Thanks, Patties

      If I remember correctly it depends on the person but my patients have averaged aanywhere from 2 weeks to two months depending on age and severity of disease. Best of luck to you, Carm RN.
