Considering Reversal


I am new to this site and wanted to join to learn more about having a reversal done.  I go for a colonoscopy on 1/9 to make sure everything looks good and a reversal can be completed.  I had a sigmoid colostomy done in March 2016.  I have Crohn’s disease but my Crohn’s has been in remission and well controlled for the last 18 months or so.  I don’t mind the colostomy and have been OK mentally dealing with the lifestyle change but if a reversal can be done, I want it reversed.  My biggest fear is having to live in the bathroom again.  Before my colostomy I would be in the bathroom for hours b/c of Crohn’s and IBS.  If I have the reversal, I don’t want to spend my life in the bathroom nor not have a life due to the fear of being too far away from the bathroom. 

I have a great career and great family.  I don’t want to lose my job or my family due to the bathroom. 

Any advice, comments, or concerns is greatly appreciated.
