I had my reversal in January. I had complications including a leak and a fistula that landed me in the hospital, having another surgery, and on TPN for a week.
That being said, here I am in April, fairly close to "normal"
I have clustering...in the evenings and sometimes morning. Where I'm emptying out every 10 minutes over a couple hours. The toosh gets a little burny after that!
I was away last weekend renting a house in the woods, and the owners had put in a heated toilet seat and warm water bidet. AMAZING!!!!!! If I could get insurance to pay for one I would get one. If you are looking at a rougher, longer recovery a bidet may be a good investment!!!
