I got home on the evening of the 25th after my surgery for J-pouch on the 21st. Surgeon said my surgery went beautifully, and she was even able to finish ahead of the 3-4 hour window because everything was perfect. :D So far no problems other than my first changing at the hospital myself just cause the dang loop ileo wouldn't be quite for 5 minutes! But I know that will get better and I figure out a time that works best. I do unfortunately have a mushroom stoma which can be harder to get the wafers right up next too, but maybe it will go away once the swelling goes down. It's nice to finally have things going right! Thanks again for all the support!
