I am back at home! It is so nice to have be back in my own bed and my own bathroom. Hospitals are really crowded in Canada and I had a co-ed room with 3 other people... Luckily 2 of the other patients had new ileostomies so the line up for the bathroom wasnt too long!
I had to spend an extra 2 days there as I was feeling nauseas and having problems keeping things down. Still in a bit of pain but have switched from Percacet to Tylenol 3s so all is well!
The biggest adjustment is having free hands while on the toilet. I guess I will catch up on all my reading again!
Good to hear that you are home and resting comfortably in your own surroundings. Isn't it amazing how much you miss your favorite things, like your bed and pillow and favorite chair or sofa? Ya never realize it until you are away from it... like sleeping in hotels - gets old after a while!
Sounds like you are doing wonderfully. Don't expect too much from your body - it's been through a lot. Take it ease, take it slow. Listen to it - take naps if you have to.
Keep us updated on your progress. Best of luck to you. Good news is always great to hear.
Thanks, that encourages me. It's good to know about the immodium; I've taken it before, but I was so sick and out of it at that time that I don't know if it made me worse. So glad to be healthy now ..I read on your signature about your twin sister, and I am so sorry; I am a twin, too, and I know that must be really hard. Thank you for your advice and your prayers.
