Oh Aunty Ivy this post made me smile sooo much!! I’m at work and it just bucketed down with rain! It’s 4:30 in the afternoon and black outside, such strange weather we have in QLD!
I’m doing really really well!!! I think the fistula is starting to close, it doesn’t hurt like it used to, and it’s getting slowly smaller (it’s a big one!), and my skin tags are ½ the size they used to be. Already! AND (get this) I don’t wake up during the night to go to the toilet! Not once!! And in the mornings, I still wake up, expecting to need to ‘go’ urgently, and……. Nothing! It’s amazing! Normal BM’s! It’s almost too crazy to believe!! I even went out for Friday night drinks after work last week, and normally that would have me sick for a week, but I was fine!
I have my 2nd infusion on the 19th, and I see the surgeon on the 21st. he is going to try and take the seton and the mushroom out in his clinic but if he can’t get it out there I will have to go through the hospital and go under a general anaesthetic. I am feeling doubtful that it will come out in his office, because the skin has grown completely around it, and I’m guessing the mushroom is bigger at the top, so I don’t know how it’s possibly going to come out of its own free will!
I am really enjoying feeling so good. I am so used to going for walks during my lunch hr and then having to run and hide and find a toilet all of a sudden and double over in pain. And now, when that doesn’t happen, it still takes me aback. I know that this is a limited treatment, and as my specialist says, sooner or later the body builds up antibodies, but for now I am just going to enjoy the ride……..
How are you, Ivy?
