My management of my ileostomy is good. No issues there it is very easy.
Not sure about the reversal, I've got x4 folfox treatments to go so on the second last I will get in contact with my surgeon and arrange a time. I also have to in between them get an X-ray down on the site check for leaks internal.
Is a reversal open surgery? Is it another scar?
Will be the most interesting part of it knowing how Lars will affect me.
My once says I'm doing very well and doesn't want to see me next folfox treatment. One less hospital parking ticket hehe
