What a day! I MADE my own pizza and then had TWO slices
Granted it was only cheese pizza but what a change from the mushy mashed potatoes and what not! Ughh.
I felt ok after it ... a little acid reflux but took a Pepcid AC and am feeling great so far.
Now I dread sleeping, or trying to sleep, I'm out of the Ambien the doctor gave me and have to sleep on my own now. I am extremely uncomfortable in bed as I used to sleep on my side and now I have to sleep on my back! If I roll on my side I get all crampy in my lower back. It's getting better I think. I walked about
10 rounds around my pool today too .. so I'm looking forward to tomorrow being as good as today. I have yet to have 2 consecutive good days! Fingers crossed!!!!
I spoke with the doctor about
anal leakage and having "regular" bowel movements. They did remove my rectum and my colon and he said it was normal to have the urge to go t the bathroom and have mucus and blood come out. I've noticed that more and more mucus and blood is coming out and was wondering how long this lasts for? Anyone experienced this?
Jackie: The stoma nurse was awesome. She sent me home with some pre-cut wafers, bags (clear and opaque), eakin seals, scissors, a small mirror, the works! She also put in an order for me with EdgePark and I did receive it. I tried the Hollister bags and wafers and they caused me to itch like crazy!!!!
I switched back to the ones I got in the hospital and now I only have 2 left. I'm going to look thru the EdgePark ordering guide to see if I can exchange or order the right ones for me.
Time to bed ... oh boy ....
