My thing is putting the "clip" thing back on. I can be very dyslexic and I have very poor fine motor skills and just when I think I figured out how to put it back on I have a heck of a hard time the next time
like this morning I tried to put it on and I stood there in the restroom what seemed like forever and for the life of me I couldn't get it right. I finally got it but later on today I had the same problem. I'd take it off and try to figure out how it worked and then I'd put it back on only I'd have it backwards. I'd go lay down in bed which helps some but it still takes me a bit of time to get it right.
The ostomy I'm using now is a 2 piece and has Velcro but I still like using the clip to keep it secure, plus I have a hard time figuring out how to remove the strips on the Velcro. I still haven't, the nurse did it for me today and she did it so fast I didn't see what she was doing, I didn't even think about
asking her about
the Velcro until after the fact.
I'm laughing myself the way I do things, ive got to keep my sense of humor through all of this...though there are times I'm so frustrated because I know what I'm doing, or I thought I did but I tend to turn things around being dyslexic. You say go left I go right
I have radiation early tomorrow then I see the surgeon that put the colostomy and port in. All my oncologists and my surgeon is wonderful. I don't really like Dr's but I got lucky with the radiation oncologist, chemo oncologist and the surgeon who will also do the surgery once the tumor is shrunk down a considerable amount. I'll have that surgery 3 months from now and then full strength chemo to make sure the tumor doesn't come back.
Yeah I'm scared about
that surgery. It's going to be a very long, long surgery with 2 different surgeons. And that scares me. But then I read/hear about
others who've gone through similar and note than I will, that helps a lot.
Maybe others have similar problems, being here helps.
