YAY!!! Soon you will be healthy and doing all the stuff you can't now! my son was my major reason for surgery. And now i can sit in car line, and go to field trips and volunteer and take him shopping or to the park or whatever.
But i found other perks too, since i feel better, my husband and I can go out together (son spends the night with his grandma on friday nights) or with friends for dinner or a movie or whatever, and we get along so much better now! and we can go on vacation and all those great things you can't do now.
When you start to doubt your decision, and you will, just remember all the things you are missing out on and all the things you can't do, and that an ileo will give you all that back! good luck!
UC for 8 years, before finally kicking its butt and having a permanent ileostomy April 17 2007!
-I have gone to find myself, if i get back before i return, keep me here-
No matter what kind of day you are having, take five minutes to sing loudly and dance like a fool!
