hey folks, seven days out now and thought i`d post some things for the guys behind me. getting rid of the gas has been slow but is progressing and bm`s have started again as of yesterday. last nite was my best rest so far and praise be i awoke to morning wood even with the cath, crazy!i have been sort of light headed through this whole thing but is improving. going under is very hard on my body for some reason so if it takes you awhile to get going dont freak. i was slow to get walking because of the bleeding but have done it in 15 to 30 minute sessions in the house because our weather sucks and so far seem to be doing ok. i have had no drooling from the cath and so far my bag has been clear and looks like a beer! i have taken only one pain pill a day since  coming home and do that at nite to help rest. the bruising is insane! hips, nuts, winky, butt you name it dont be alarmed when you see it and yes it hurts to cough or try to blow your nose. your body type likely will have a lot to do with what you go thru, i`m tall and slim, 6 feet 155lbs and in decent shape so as they say your mileage may vary. i did have a tough mental day yesterday but just work thru it, the cath will wear on your brain, just think of how david {purgatory} has dealt with it and you will gain perspective. i have 2 days left with it and cant be too soon! let the wife do stuff for you, but remember there will be payback later! bless you all tim
