That is just such great news for you!!! Yipppeeeee!
Are you on any special kind of diet to maintain you weight so you don't have to go back to tpn? Or, like me, eat everything!
I'm so happy for you and esp to have great news like this right before the holidays. Congrats!
Thanks for your posts. To answer your questions, I have been on a normal (ileostomy diet) for the last six months. Like all of us, I guess, raw vegetables and fruit with tough skins do not really digest, but, I eat about everything else. My weight has gone from 115 lbs. in January/February '07 to 170lbs. today (I'm 6' 3" tall). Before getting sick I was a husky 220lbs.! I still struggle mightily, however, with hydration but I guess that comes with the territory. I celebrated with a lunch of pizza and spinach roll with a Vitamin Water to wash it down. I also just finisshed a nice chicken dinner with baked potatoes and my ever present Vitamin Water. Life is good!
