As well as Brownbagger, I never had a problem with my reversal...I was reversed on April 2009, and no "accidents".
I did go to the bathroom several times a day but hey!! I love to be able to go to the bathroom several times, I had no problems with that, I had no pains or disconforts, everything went fine. I was very anxious of being able to have a reversal and back to a more normal life. I Thank God everything went fine. I started working 3 weeks after my reversal, and what I mean by working is working out, I am a Fitness and Pilates instructor...so I was already doing real strong abs not even a month after the reversal and port removed surgery. Diet, mental and physical acctivities play a very important part on your recup.
I was DX with stage II CRC in July 2008, and went through the entire combo of 2 months of 24/7 chemo and radi,otherapy then the colon resection with temp. ileo, 4 more months of Folfox and then the most beloved surgery of them all my reversal
Keep your mind very positive, and work on your recuperation, keep focus, and remember that cancer is a battle that needs to be fought to the end.... the very end, we have to become strong warriors from one minute to the next to be able to win this battle.
Buena Suerte on your reversal, I am sure you will do just fine
