Hi everyone,
it has ben more than a month since my surgery. I have an update to share. i notice when I eat the foods that my body tolerates and do not eat the intorable foods, I now go to the bathroom a couple of times for a half hour and I'm done. if I eat those intorable foods, I still go 8-10 times an hour and every hour throughout the night. With me I just stick with my good foods and i can now go out longer and do more things without may interruptions and I can actually sleep through the night, only getting up once or twice. Since everyone's body is different, with mine, as long as I avoid the intolerable foods, I am okay. I just wanted eveyone to know that there is hope and wanted to share something good about my recovery. Good luck to everyone who is about to have the surgery. You will go alot at first, but it will slow down and you will have an even better life because on top of doing everything I can do now, I also can do alot more things that I could not do in the past because of my constipation and sickness. I just want to thank you all for being there for me. Don't worry I am still here to answer and give more updates, since I love to help everyone who has been or will be through this journey. trust me, I am very addicted to this site because i love you all and I love to help and answer questions.

Psygirl I am happy that things have turned out so well for you. It sounds like you've got it figured out. I'm also glad you'll still be around. I'll definitely need you in the next few weeks as I get used to my 'new body' after surgery and try to get things figured out for myself.

Congratulations on your new life!!
