I had my illostomy done in June,and was told after 3 months I would beable to have it reversed,well here it is October,and I still have it. I have scheduled it twice but something with my kids always comes up. I have now told the surgoen that I will get back to him after the holidays because of everything going on. I am a single mom,and it just seems easier to keep the illo then to go back in the hospital and be away from my kids. I feel pretty good physically and would love to get a job and live my life w/o having to worry about upcoming surgery.
