That is such fantastic news - you have had health probs since birth - how old are you now? i am also envious as i want to get better. you may have to edit your sign in/sign off now! out of interest (cant remember if i asked you this before) did you ever take laxatives before your colectomy? and what is the bm situation now?
Nice to know someone from GB is on this forum too.
take care now and keep posting won't you. karen x
hi 2much2bear, how are you, and whereabouts are you? laxatives never ever worked on me, just whenever i got that full that i could hold no more would my body naturally let me go, normally about 3-4 weeks worth, but i was never empty. I always just grinned (through gritted teeth)and got on with it. But life was difficult, being in constant pain swelling. I am going on 29 but yes the problems have been since birth, 29 in oct so not quite the full 29 years but close enough!! what about you??? want to share with me, maybe i can offer some advice from my point of view? offer is there if you want. And another thing i am not leaving this forum, they will have to ban before i decide not to come back.
Was actually thinking about changing my name but was worried it was a bit too presumptious. That chicks thing again. I also don't want to jinx myself. lol But post back. I always like chatting. I have made a few good friends through this and still hope to make more
(your time will come, i promise, just takes time, cliche I know, like i said i could not see an end to the pain, but it took 13 months from date of surgery for things to finally be going well) xxx
hi again, how are you prayingforhealing???
well i am going from strength to strength!!!! A wee bit weird the past 2 days, not sure if it was a peach! i was eating a really juicy delicious peach yesterday then i noticed it was not tasting nice, yep i had been eating a rotten peach,, well i pooped 3 times yesterday, woohoo, but not woohoo for my poor bum!!!! then this morning i got in a coughing fit, threw up then again, and i have pooped 3 times again. yep my poor bum is BURNING!!!!!! baby nappy cream here i come. At the same time i should be pooping 3-4 times daily but the past few months only once, twice on a good day, but maybe cos i have been feeling great i am now pooping like i am meant to. What do you guys think????? am i right to think like this? After being sick, and dry wretching, my tummy muscles were sore, still are a wee bit, but nothing to do with the tc. Anyway i am much much better and i am still so excited about it.
I am also excited as my hubby and i are going to try for our final baby!!!!!!!! yes i would like a girl as i have 4 boys but hey iwhat will be will be, no doubt i am going to end up with my own little 5-a-side footie team(soccer), but i am over the moon, and bursting at the seams, knowing i am fit enough and healthy enough to have a baby. We have been given the go ahead from the consultants so considering my health has taken a dramatic turn for the better, bring on morning sickness!!!! bring on the nappies cos i am ready !!!! woohoo
hope all my hw family are well, xxx
