My reversal update

Welcome to MeetAnOstoMate.org
Sat Jan 25, 2020 8:57 am

Well it's Saturday morning. My "guts" pretty much woke up yesterday. I've been pretty much constantly passing gas ever since. I'm moving to a liquid diet today, which is good, the ice chips are getting old. They came in a 4AM and asked if I'd like the Foley out, who am I to say no? Seriously it's much easier to walk. At about 5 I realized I was so antsy in the bed I got up and did several laps of this foor of the hospital. I'm sitting in a chair right now watching old movies on TCM. If all stays well I'm on track to be home by Monday or Tuesday.

Great news Current!!!  TCM???  Wow, you're in a NICE hospital!  All I ever got was Wheel of Fortune, Days of our Lives and Maury Povich getting rednecks to fight on live TV.  Hang in there brother, you'll be on the outside looking in in no time!  Keep us updated or if you just get bored let us know and we'll try to entertain you.  I sent Warrior my Bra and Panties and he promised to post pics........should be interesting!

Seriously, keep getting well and get the heck out of there ASAP!

regards,

bob

Let me explain. About 2 years ago AT&T, our cell provider made us an offer we couldn't refuse. They offered us their online TV service, with something like 100 channels for $10. I'm watching on my laptop. I have better cable than the hospital!

Well the lucky thing is I work a desk job from home, so the most I'll be doing is walking down the hall to my office.

We locked in the rate and threw Comcast to the curb. To watch on TV all you need is a Firestick or Roku. It's basically cable without the cable price.

I think my PT will amount to walking around the hospital. I weaned myself off the morphine two days ago, really I didn't need it any more. All I really needed it for was to moderate the pain when I coughed. I was concerned about not being able to clear my throat and coming down with pneumonia. Now I'm just going stir crazy sitting in this room.

Currents...........that's great!  Being stir-crazy is the symptom of being ready to get the heck out of there!  Awesome deal you got on streaming!! Sweeet!  Hope they tell you to pack your bags any minute now........

FWIW I already have them. It seems in the last 10 minutes or so #2 has restarted. I shall see if my rear end remembers the difference between solid and gas.

Mon Jan 27, 2020 6:45 pm

Oh I'm sure it will!  And you won't need the Depends, as they won't let you leave until what comes out is normal.  You're just a few shits away from coming home!  Get-R-Done!

Must be different here Bob cause when I had the reversal done 3 years before the permanent I had to use depends for quite a while...mine was ileo so tho it may make a difference.
