I can't believe it, I woke up yesterday and felt different, I realized I felt healthy!!!! It's been so long.
I saw the stoma nurse yesterday who checked me out and other than a tiny little bit where my stitches were which gets sore, I've healed up really well. My other little wounds are fading nicely now and I'm putting bio-oil on which is meant to help scars fade.
I then drove (can't believe I can drive now) to town and met a friend for lunch and then took myself off to buy a new dress. I just can't believe for the first time in months I went out feeling healthy, doing normal things, not really thinking about the fact I had my little friend with me and that I was wearing my new accessory. What was really nice was when I walked into the cafe my friend was there and the first thing she said was how well I looked, I then sat down with a rather scrummy sandwich and she commented on how good it was to see me with food. It made me feel so good. I was really tired when I got in and had an early night but had such a good day.
Anyway, enough rambling, just wanted to put down that I was feeling more positive now and that hopefully anyone reading this who is new, or not long had their op will know that things do get better and that feeling low gets less and less.
Take care, best wishes to all
