Hi Strawberry36, I hope your mother does begin to improve. I am a good 20 years younger than your mam & I would always have been fairly fit, I did find that for many weeks maybe up to 3 months after my perm ileo op in May 2010 I was absolutely exhausted. Despite a full night in bed, I would nearly every afternoon need to collapse into bed for another hour or two. I dont know medically the reason for this but I put down to my body trying to get over the op & to get over many years of not being properly nourished thru UC.
Now that its 9 months later I dont have the same prob - personally I feel that plenty of rest, good quality food, good source of protein will allow eventual recovery from what is a major surgery.
? hope this give some litttle comfort.
UC since 1990, not a lot of fun
Qualified as ileostomate May 2010, a much happier boy now
panproctocolectomy, abdomino perineal resection, perm ileostomy
my colon may not be, but my heart is in the right place !!
