I am new to this blog. I had a LAR November 2017 and I learnt today that my leak has repaired itself. I will probably be offered a reversal by my surgeon next week but I am not sure I should go for it. I am worried about the impact on my quality of life post reversal. I am 57 and I had a low tumour. I only have 3 or 4cm of rectum left. I do not want to be stuck at home for months or more. Can you please let me know if you think it was the right thing to do for you to go for a reversal? How often do you have "accidents"? can you travel by plane or is it too risky? Is your life better or worst without a stoma?
thank you for any comments/advice.
