Hello to all:
I am 15 days post op from my surgery. Did anyone when they had the totoal colecotmy have a lot of fluid that keeps leaking from the surgery site. This has been going on since Monday, so I am hoping that it is going to slow down.
They gave me nothing when they discharged me from the hospital to keep my incision covered. So I am stuck at home with no help what so ever and I was looking through my medicine box for some pads to place on my site so that it would not keep soaking my nighties... So the only thing I could find was a Old Not used...lol Menstral pad and taped to my incision, funny but it is working.
Still feeling like I have been hit by a bus and all the muscles hurt since they cut through all of them but the pain is managable now, as long as I keep my butt laying down and taking it easy. I wish that I could sleep during the day, but my body will not relax enough for me to get my much need rest.
I really don't have any complaints about my surgery,,,except....I LOVE IT AND I KNOW IT IS ALREADY CHANGED MY LIFE FOR THE GOOD.
I eat a tiny amount every hour and drink tons of liquids, so I am finding it very exciting to eat without suffering.....So daily I think about what I want to eat next as I was not able to eat anything but Chicken Noodle Soup for over a year... Guess what I wont eat now...Yup, you got it, not the noodle soup....way over it.
so having another enourgeing day...yipee life is getting good. Bless you all...
