Its been a few weeks since ive updated or commented so i guess ill do it now.

I dont eat much at all anymore no real reason why but i think im losing weight im not trying to lose weight just i dont feel like eating much anymore. i havnt had and thing bad go wrong at this point i dont think anything will atleast for 2 weeks. the 31st of this month ill go in for my 2nd surgery, soo funn. jk. but during the time having to wear the bag i got use to it and i honestly wouldnt really mind having to keep it but its not my choice hehe. parents over rule everything untill im 18.. i think.. anywho its ok either way.

nothing is really new other than that.

Adam~are you running a fever? Even low grade? Sometimes lack of appetite/weight loss can be caused by one.

It's cool that you are comfortable with your ostomy smilewinkgrin and all my 'j-pouch' friends are happy with theirs...I bet you'll feel the same, too!

Now, go take your temperature!

Are you still taking pain medication? Did I read correctly that you haven't eaten for 2 weeks? Are you consuming enough salt? It sounds as if you are dehydrated. How much weight have you lost? Your surgeon will be concerned if there is a significant weight loss. If you don't want to have the second surgery, talk with your parents; you shouldn't have to. If they won't listen, talk with your surgeon.

i havnt taken any pain meds since i left the medical center from my 1st surgery. i do eat just latly i havnt ate much "like the lasst 2-3 weeks." i would talk to my surgeon but my doctor would step in and tell me "no just get the surgery" but it doesnt matter if i do or dont get the surgery to me.
