I promised myself not to respond to your topics Jackie but dang here I am - I'll allow another ostomate to respond about
your herbs question. But my fingers are itching for this reply - personally I think you need to pay attention to what your body is telling you - ie, no sex, no zip lining, no dancing, no partying in dance clubs. Take 1 month to heal, still walk - that's always recommended but the above activities IMHO, happened much too soon, after major surgery. At the very least, do you want to risk a hernia? Which would require corrective surgery? Me, I've always avoided more surgery, but at this pace, you are asking for trouble. I'm sorry, I know someone has to say this, so it looks like it's going to be me. As always, I wish you well but promise me you'll think about
taking 1 month to cease all of your usual physical activities? Be a post-op-patient, not a wild girl (for now). Okay, I'm done.
I mean all of this in the kindest way possible but in a motherly way, because well I am a mother of two daughters, not much older than you are (21 and 24) and I've survived two major intestinal surgeries.
