Hello all.  I plan to have a reversal and a hernia repair at the same time in the summer. I’d like to know what experiences you all have had with this surgery should u like to share. Colectomy done in March 2019 and now have a parastomal hernia with a prolapse. Waiting until August when Medicare begins.  😊

Hi,

I am a year out on reversal. Everyone is going to have a different journey based on the surgical technique, amount of changes from previous anatomy, diet, digestive physiology, and every other factor that makes us all different. I had challenges post reversal with finding out what foods I can tolerate, interrupted sleep with sudden unexpected urges to go, having to learn how to cope with work, travel, etc. Things are much better now. Normal ? no. Would I do it again ? Yes!! I still have a forever urostomy but am doing better having only one. I still have my days, but life is good!! I recently had incisional hernia repair with one near my urostomy and hernias near my old ileostomy and colostomy sites. It was done with both robotic and manual laparoscopy. It wasn't fun but was worth it after a scare when entrapment sent me to the ER.

 

Hang in there, I hope all goes well!!
