If you are reading these posts, I was just wondering how you are feeling about your upcoming surgery? Do you have any other concerns or questions that we might be able to help you with before Friday? Will anyone be able to log into this forum and keep us updated on your surgery and recovery?
Also, I just wanted to let you know that there is a chat session tonight (Tuesday) beginning around 8 p.m. and you are welcome to pop in. Just click on CHAT located in the dark blue bar above, then choose OSTOMIES and log in. I hope to be there at some point. If you are not successful in logging in the first time, be sure to choose the Ostomies chat room from the pull down menu. Sometimes I forget to do that getting in a hurry and you will get an error message. Hope to see you there!
I just had my colectomy on Dec. 24. It was very scary and I can totally understand everything you have gone through. I'm back home recovering now. Although I know I feel better than I did before going into the surgery - I was super sick with UC for weeks leading up to the surgery - recovery isn't easy. I think it is because I'm in such a weakened state. I'm glad to hear you are doing well.
I'm going to post some of my post-surgery questions in another post.
Just wanted to let you know you weren't alone with surgery over Christmas!
