Well everyone it's been about
2 and a half months since my J pouch and I honestly can say I couldn't be happier! Just this past week I've been REALLY feeling better and actually almost back to my normal pre-UC self.
At work I'm jumping in and out of truck beds, working and not getting tired, stomach is healing up well and the scars look better and better every day. Am really able to go a while without HAVING to go to the bathroom.
I've got my car as many of you know! 2003 SVT Cobra. Also, just rode my dirt bike again for the first time in 6 months up my street and I felt GREAT on it!
My only negative right now would be I get some irritation down there every now and then, but nothing that is like BAD.... just minor. Other then that I am feeling better then I ever thought I would. Have been eating hot dogs, salads, huge burgers, big macs, steaks, pistachios, ice cream, cereal, milk... Nothing I've tried has effected me one bit yet! Also have drank a few beers with no problem.
ANYWAYS... I was just VERY happy this week when I started jumpin off trucks and runnin around at work and just feeling back to normal and thought I'd share!
Here's a couple pictures of my new car.... Already modded it a bit... for you car freaks: JLT Intake, Magnaflow Catback, and Lowered it just yesterday!VIEW IMAGEVIEW IMAGEVIEW IMAGE
