I was surprised by my doc when he said, do you want to have surgery tomorrow?
I was thrilled.
Those who aren't familar I was attacted which led to a temp. colostomy.
Well things went okay, till I spiked a fever and my insension got infected. They opened the wound, and filled me to the rim with anti-biotics.
I now have an open wound, and packing it and all that fun stuff.
Bad thing is the fasha is disrupted from the infection so that may lead to a hernia, and I may have an intraped nerve.
BUT no more bags!
THanks to you all. I'll still be around
DX-Migraines:PCOS(should have seen this list before!!)

On Jan 17th I had a very traumatic situation ending in a colostomy. Wait on reversal date. Not doing to well.
Meds: Prevacid, Lexapro, Xanex, some pain meds.

May God give you a reason to smile today, an extra reason to laugh, and bring joy to your soul.
