Well, as some of you know - I had to see a plastic surgeon because my wound will not heal. At the consult, he told me that I had two choices - leave the wound open for the rest of my life or he could do some funky surgery with a mesh that goes into the middle of your abdomen that is made out of cadavers (dead people) and then he would pull the muscles from the side of my stomach and bring them to the front of the stomach. I was not thrilled with either choice. I was expecting to get a skin graft and was prepared for that. Well, I go for my (yeah another chance to glow in the dark) CT scan this coming Wednesday. Ought to be a joy-filled experience for everyone involved as I have chronic diarrhea and liquid just flies right through me LOL at least I get an afternoon off of work YEAH - I get the results on March the 8th and another afternoon off work DOUBLE YEAH - At this point, I'm not sure what I'm hoping for so I won't ask anybody to say a prayer for me LOL
Maybe I won't be a candidate for the surgery so I won't have to decide - I mean who really elects to have another major operation? I know the morphine and hydromorph and all the rest are great drugs (Look at the pretty colors) and I might leave the decision up to Stefan the Stoma but we're not talking right now and not seeing eye to eye, so to speak...
Thanks for listening
As you recover from surgery, you may feel tired and not interested in exercising much, if at all. But it's important for your health and well-being to start moving around.
