I'm Post Op 19 days and practically recovered. I'm trying to learn all the little nuances of bagging. The wafer is very intimdating. Nurse told me yesterday about using Tic-Tacs for deoderant. Really cool and inexpensive. need to start using skin protection, kind of a witch hazel thing; toughens the skin while helping to make a good seal. Learning to make an order that is all-inclusive of needs; what a job.
Well, I am to be permanent on the bag. nothing indefinite about it. My Aortic Anorism Graph settled the discussion. Doc will not consider re-attach(period).
I am going to do more Chemo, Mostly pills but some Drip. My Porto-cath still functioning.
Excuse the shout please. WHEW! I am so relieved. I feel stronger and better everyday. What a Hospital bill. $43,000 plus, next comes Doctors and Labs. There goes the Lexus in my future. I'm thinking "Golf Cart". I will continue the Lease on my Corvette; some pleasures are required in life. The battery-charging system worked, a great value.
I feel so lucky! But not ready for Las Vegas. My best to everyone, I just wanted to share my feelings. I hope everyone is as happy as I am.
Thanks for this forum, It is super to have people with whom I can share.
If I can be of any help to anyone in any way. I'm thinking the Ronald MacDonald House could use a little help so I will look there, it would really assist me to feel helpful.
