     Since my operation on June 28th I have been taking showers.  Is it ok to take a bath?  I have a perm ileo and afraid if it gets too wet the seal may loosen????

if you incision is healed you can take a bath. Just be careful with bathoils

I snorkle for hours, hot tub, water ski, etc. All of this does shorten the lives of our appliances but it makes our lives much more enjoyable.

     How have you been LilSis?  I was wondering about you.  Did you ever get an explanation from your surgeon as to why he didn't sew your anus shut?  Mine said there are more complications when they do that, so if the anus isn't diseased he leaves well enough alone.
     I do have to have a CT scan of the pelvis and abdomen this coming Wed..  The surgeon doesn't like my bleeding from the vagina but he thinks it is all from the surgery.  There may be a build up of blood somewhere.
     I took a bath and loved it!! smilewinkgrin
