Hi! I just got my ileostomy reversed after 7 years. If you’ve had the transition from ostomy to “normal” again, please let me know your experience!

    I’ve had that procedure done, I had mine reversed after 4 months as a teenager. As someone that has had a lot of mental trauma after my procedure I would definitely suggest talking to a therapist if you’re having any unsettling or emotional feelings. The physical recovery for me is still happening many years later. I have occasional pulling sensations and have had constant numbness around the surgical area since it was reversed in 2014. I’m sure our bodily responses are varied but I would definitely expect some new sensations. I’m so happy for you it’s a great big step towards getting better! 💕 Sending good vibes for your recovery
