Reply to "Recovering from takedown"

I kept my baggie for a full year before having the takedown because it worked best for my work schedule.  My summers were opportune for surgery/recovery because I was teaching.  Looking back.....more than 10 years ago......I'm really glad I waited.  My J-pouch was well healed and I had no issues transitioning to a connected system.  I had no problem accepting the ileostomy because I finally felt so healthy compared to the years I lived with ulcerative colitis.  In fact, if I needed to have a permanent ileostomy, I'd have no problem with that, either.  Best wishes!
