Hi everyone!!!,I hope you all are well and blessed!!!,it's been awhile!!! I've been ok.I had to have emergency surgery to remove my appendix on the 18th of March.I was a bit scared and angry and sad at the same time when I found out.I thought that the surgery may make things worse for my IBS.I was a little afraid that something bad would go wrong while I was on the operating table.The nurses and doctors were able to let me know that it would be an easy surgery without having to
open up my stomach that much.So I said a few prayers and trusted in God that he would get me through it all.Everything went well just stayed over one night in the hospital but that night I was in a lot of pain!!!! It was unbareable at times.The nurse and doctor staff were great!!!,making me feel so comfortable and at ease and meeting every need of mine.I went home on Saturday and my doctor told me my abdomen area would be a lot soar and tender.First few days back home things were weird my doctor mention it would take awhile for me to have bowel movements.I went a week without moving my bowels I was starting to get worried and it was reminding me of when I had real bad problems with feeling constipated a lot due to my IBS.My doctor said because of the anistigia and pain medications I would feel constipated for awhile.I was dieing to have bowels movements it was making the pain I was having worse and I know having bms would lessen the pain.So they gave me Colase to help with the constipation.It was still taking up to a week for me to have some movements and finally on Sunday I was having movements.I was soooo relieved when I was able to!!! As you may know Colace makes things a bit messy and just my luck I ran out of my trusty toilet paper that I use which is the Cottonelle with Aloe paper.I can not do cheap 1ply toilet paper it's like using sandpaper for me,LOL!!! I dont know why that is but that area for me is very sensitive and that brand is the best for me and gets me really clean.I was very thankful when I was able to buy some!!!!!,such a relief!!!!,LOL!!!
I'm healing up real nice my stitches are falling out still a bit tender and soar around those areas especially where they pulled the appendix out of.I was very worried the surgery would make things worse for my IBS.It hasn't really except for some cramping that hurts a lot at times and more gassy then usual.The doctors said in a month everything in my abdomen area will feel back to normal.Surgery in the abdomen area takes longer to heal.I cant wait till I'm fully back to myself!!!!,still able to eat whatever I want to without experiencing having the runs happy about
that and I'm not constipated anymore!!!!,yaaaay!!!,LOL!!! So I just been recuperating and just waiting for the real warm weather to get here!!!! I live on the East Coast and it's taking awhile for the warm temps to really get here and stay.Looking forward to getting out and riding my bike and just getting out more to enjoy the warm weather.This has been a very loooong winter!!!,sooo over it!!!,LOL!!!!
Oh by the way I got back with my ex and all is good my ex apologized for everything.All is very well between us that is the love of my life! Also been looking for a new job but no leads yet praying that someone will get back to me.Also looking to the summer and getting out more come hell or high water I will not let IBS get in the way of me having fun this summer I am not going to stay home on days and nights when it's just gorgeous out!!!! I pray you all are doing well and just getting the answers you need and peace in your system to just get back out there and live life to the fullest with no obstacles in your way in Jesus name I pray amen!!!! Wishing you only the best of stomach and digestive health!!!!!,all my love xoxoxoxoxo
