Thanks for all of your good wishes! Peggy, the time really did come quickly. I'm nervous but optimistic. I report to the hospital tomorrow at 6am. I've been feeling pretty good. Sometimes I wonder if I should be putting myself through all this, but, with the ileostomy, I still have the hydration problems & hopefully this will be the answer I've been looking for.
I'll try and post from the hospital to let you know how it is going.
Ileostomy since August 2005.
As result of surgery (modified whipple) for necrotising pancreatitis. Removal of gallbladder, 2/3 of pancreas, resections of large and small intestines. Massive infection.
