I know it has been a long time since I have written, but after my total on May 16, I also got a wound infection that my husband had to pack for me. It scared me, and felt like one of those things you would never imagine seeing on your own body. Mary J, when I first saw you mention yours, I truly felt like I wasn't alone. Mine is just about closed, but still has to be covered with gauze because it leaks. Also, I don't see how it will close up smoothly because the inside almost seems to be blossoming out. I was told this was normal, but am still confused as to what the final result will be. Sorry for any of you with weak tummys, but we talk poop, so I was hoping it would be okay.
It is after midnight and I need to get up early with my daughter, but wanted to catch up and see how everyone is doing. I promise to write more, and for those of you who don't know, I am 5 weeks out from the surgery. He took out 5 1/2 feet and stated that was quite long. I lost 20 lbs right off the top, and am still losing daily. I don't mind though because I had some baby weight (she's 2 now, for those of you moms that catch my drift) that I still needed to get rid of.
I'll write more tomorrow and let you all know how my procedure went. Thanks for caring.
