Still in the hospital, but doing better. I am off my IV and its heplocked. My ileo started working last night...they had to put a catheter in it and it openened up. It has been 10 days and I thik I may be able to go home tomorrow if I can eat ok. The output is a lot right now. Is this normal? I feel I have to empty it every hour? I am not sure what brand, but they ordered me some two piece 6'' ad 9'' bags,some with clips and some with roll and lock? I am on vicodin, motrin, and neurontin right now and have bene moving around pretty good.
Just some questions. I have been very emotional and crying, esp since I changed it on my own (which was not that bad being a nurse and all).
Is it normal to feel sad like I do and to not feel so sure about what you have on your body?
What happens if someone runs into it and bumps it? Can this hurt it?
When does the output slow down and its making loys of noise does this slow down or go away as well?
Having an ileo it does not small that bad, but it still does. They have told me to use mouth strips? Has anyone ussed this before?
Can you wear yournormal clothes? I think it pouches a little. DO youall where something (esp girls) under your shirt t o hold it down like a body tannk or something?
I know you said you can drink....does it affect you differently?
Just some of my questions. I will have more. Going to try and eat lunch.
