The gas is
Had some Tums and it helped initially. Trying to get Gas-x but it is Sunday and hospital is short staffed - they will have to call the doctor to get orders. Oi vey! I just might have hubbie smuggle some in.
Also, ice cream I ate could have been the culprit. It came in my lunch so did pudding. I am not going to eat that for a while. They sent ice cream, pudding and milk- what are they thinking.
Anywho- I had the broth and for dinner some tomato soup. That was good. My stoma is very active. Loud and making itself known. I find this very funny.
By the way, I emptied it out for the first time today. The nursing assistant showed me. I did okay. It still looks yucky. I want it changed asap. The stoma nurse will be here tomorrow to help. I also had some discharge from my butt.. No pain just like pink discharge when I went to pee.
I think that is normal? The doctor said that might happen? ANy thoughts?
Other than that- tired today.. but still in relatively high spirits.
Any all advice appreciated.
Thanks to all
