Reply to "How Long Between Your Surgery's?"

I had a two step and chose to wait a full year between Step 1 and Step 2 even though my surgeon said I was ready for the takedown after three months.  I wanted to be sure I was well healed and for the first time in years I felt really healthy!  I had trouble giving up my ileostomy because it was a Godsend!  Even when I was on the table ready to be put under, I was weeping!  My surgeon told me I could change my mind.  I chose to go ahead. It's been a little over15 years since my takedown and I love my J-pouch!  I can eat and drink anything/everything!  Best wishes!
