Oh yeah, plenty of bowel sounds. In fact we just had the bag pop off from a large amount of output. They probably should have used a one piece instead of two piece out of surgery, oh well. They have moved me from clear liquids to full liquids and I think plan on that till at least tomorrow. This is my second surgery, the first was to remove everything but what might be needed if I wanted the j-pouch. I opted to go with a permanent ileostomy so this second surgery they cut the rest out and sewed me shut. The first was lapro but this one she went in in one spot so just cut me from pubic line up to naval. I was a lot healthier after the first surgery but I did have UC with that little bit that was left. Now I can feel that I am completely cured, it is an awesome feeling.
