Thanks, Andy! I actually feel fine so far today. I did go ahead and take an extra prednisone tablet though and took 2 Tramadol last night before bed. I can't imagine 80 mg either. How is your recovery going?
I'm sure my GI guy would kill me if he knew, but there might have been one or two extra Prednisone tablets over my years. Glad you got your head above water
I'm doing well. Went back to work Monday and am functioning. Three days at work helped a lot with my confidence.
Sitting here and being afraid of re-engaging was starting to mess with my head. I proved I am still me. But hit a wall yesterday afternoon and woke up this morning to a little bleeding at one of the surgical sites. I think I twisted it in my sleep. Decided to take a day. Everyone keeps telling me to take the time if I need it, so I did.
Got the diet down and am now itching to get back to working out, but I'm weeks away from that.
Still wrapping my head around the whole ostomy though. Some days I'm all over it. Some days it wins. But there is no doubt whatsoever that I feel much, much better. I'm not UC sick anymore which still surprises me at times. Tug of war between those two things. Feel good and healthy, but... bag.
Day at a time, so they say.
