Wow you are already thinking about
getting back to work??
I am glad that you are feeling better and yeah-- you still need to rest.
I am doing okay-- much more energy and I am seeing Dr. Weiss for follow up this coming Monday. I am pretty sure he will give me the go ahead to work. So I am thinking about
going back to work week of April 27th. I want to finish out the school year ( I am a high school teacher and reading specialist).
I am getting used to the bag- if everything goes as planned I will still have it after 2nd surgery ( the creation of the jpouch) and then the ileostomy will be removed and jpouch will be connected during 3rd surgery. 2nd surgery will be sometime in June and 3rd in early Aug.
Did Dr. Weiss say how long before 2nd surgery for you?
