Hi! Surprisingly, my recovery from my ileostomy wasn’t as bad as I imagined it would be. After surgery, it definitely took a few days for me to feel human again, though I was up and moving around the day after surgery. I had a ton of bruising but honestly it went away pretty quickly. The nurses will change your bag the first few times so definitely try and pay attention/ask questions if you can and aren’t too drugged up lol. While it was super annoying to have the bag, I experienced almost no symptoms of crohn’s/IBD while I had it. It was so weird to be able to eat and enjoy food. Changing the bag is kind of troublesome but my mom helped me the first few times and it went okay. Are you getting a reversal? My reversal recovery was so much faster than my initial ostomy surgery.
