So, While my "leeeeetle friend" is constantly going, I been noticing that it takes probably 10-12 hours for things to move through. Is that okay, or is it a sign that my small intestine is a slowpoke and lazy? So, I eat broccoli for dinner and it shows up the following morning during my spin class. (I can always tell with veggies - they hurt!) I'm thinking about a j-pouch, but wonder if havind a sleepy intetsine will affect things...Anywho, anyone know?

Joann,

Accoring to my Drs, as long as things move, you are "normal." It is always such a distraction when things move while taking an exercise class. It makes it hard for me to concentrate on teaching when I feel this annoying pressure in my stoma.

How was your class? Did you make it through the entire thing? What gym do you go to? Did you attempt a free-cycle class or another type of spin class? I teach RPM cycling classing. I am certified through the Les Mills corporation and they are a world-known influence in cycling.

Hi Joann:

Your digestion cycle seems to be on schedule from what I heard from my GI. I'm lucky if I process food for more than 3-4 hours, and, forget about soup. I love it but it runs right through.

I know it's off topic, but, I bet your glad Clemmens is taking the heat on the steroids rather than Barry Bonds!

Amey - It's a free cycle class - I haven't heard of any RPM cycling around here, Sounds fun, though. (I looked it up.) I belong to 24 Hour Fitness, but my friend teaches a class at a local YMCA, so I took hers once as well. I been to three classes, three different instructors. My first class, the instructor was kinda boring - he would do long sitting periods, followed by long standing periods. No intervals, no sprints, and not much resistance variation. I had trouble staying standing for long periods of time in that class. I felt awkward and clunky. My second class was much more varied and fun. The instructor (my friend) ha us doing intervals, hills, sprints...it kicked my rear. My third class (at 6 am this morning!!!) was pretty good - kind of a mix, but the lady chatted a lot and left the lights on. Anyway, I LOOOOOOOOVE spinning. I am completely addicted after just three classes. For the first time in my life, I am having FUN exercising. Amazing stuff.

Richard - Oh my, it is sooooo nice to have people talking about someone OTHER than Barry. Now maybe we can move on. Although, I can't say I'm seeing much of an effort by Management to make the Giants any better. We're still old with no power. So sad.

Barry Bonds has enough heat lately...didn't he just get arrested in Fl for hitting a woman?


Joann and Richard...

Here is a thought....do you think the movement of your ostomy is directly related to your hydration? Richard, you get IV fluids regularly so you are very hydrated. However, Joann, you are working out a lot lately which is very dehydrating. My ostomy is slow, slow, slow but I am constantly battling hydration. I have an appt with a nephorologist on Tuesday.

Any thoughts?

Hmmm...this could have something to do with it. I have been working out a lot more than I have in a long time, and certainly WAAAAY more, than pre-ileo. I currenlty only drink about 60 ounces of water a day, which I know isn't enough. I didn't think about any correlation between the two, but it might make sense. How much water should I drink?

Amey is the hydration PRO, right Ames?  Isn't it true, Amey, that you require a little more because of the exercising and the CI combined?

Amey- I definately think it has to do with hydration. It makes me think I should try and ween myself off of the IV, but, when I don't use it I seem to get dehydrated PDQ. I'm still trying to figure these things out. Let us know how you make out on the 22nd.

Joann- I don't think you're drinking enough water. Even with the IV I pound down twice as much as you and my workouts are not nearly as strenuous as yours. By the way, I went to the Polo Grounds (where the NY Giants played) as a very (very) young kid to see the Mets when they first started. I remember sitting in the bleachers and a young Hank Aaron was playing against the Mets that day. Do you know people here still talk about Horace Stoneham and how he moved the Giants to SF!

Ileostomy since August 2005.
As result of surgery (modified whipple) for necrotising pancreatitis. Removal of gallbladder, 2/3 of pancreas, resections of large and small intestines. Massive infection. 8 months in ICU at Westchester County M.C. (I think that's a record). Second surgery for resection due to fistulas in January 2007. Been slowly recovering since then. Possible reconnection candidate.

Richard - Wow. I went to Shea in 2000 and watched the Giants and the Mets play. It was awesome. This summer we're hoping to make it out to see the Yankees in their last year at Yankee stadium. I wish I could've seen Hank play in person.

So, I think I need to up the water - a lot. I shall try. But sheesh, that a lot of water!!!!

SJ30 - You should try a spin class!!! They are so eay to tailor to your own fitness level. If you get tired, you can slow down, decrease resistance - whatever. It's great!

sf,
 
Increasing your sodium will also help in your hydration buy helping the body retain some of the fluid....   just throwing that out there. 
 
Amey, I think this was recommended to you as well, right?
