I am so glad that everything went well for you and that you are sounding so posative. It is a great feeling isnt it,to not have the worry of that sudden urge to go to the bathroom that you just can not control. I remember the first couple of days after my Ileostomy was so weird. As well as having a cathater,the nurse was taking care of the bag emptying etc. So I had 2 whole days of not going any where near a toilet. That seemed realy alian to me lol.
Just one word of warning. Don't push yourself to quickly into doing all the adventerous things that you want to do. You will be able to do it "all" very soon,but please make sure that you are fully recovered from the surgery first. It's well worth waiting that little bit of extra time in the long run.
