want to have a reversal done

I want to have my illeostomy reversed. i was only supposed to have it for 6 months and it now has been 61/2 years. i  am tired of it leaking and want to try life without it for a while. I was diagnosed with corhns when i was 32 and i am now 40.  
Has anyone had this done after quite a few years? Any suggestions?
Would love to here from you.
