Just saw your other post and replied.
Are you really planning on teaching this Sept? That is going to be really soon to be back in the saddle I think. Not quite a full 2 months for recovery. And it sounds like you're not in the peak of health right now. I wasn't either when I had my op.
At the 2month point, I was feeling better but in no shape to be out working. Maybe you're made of stronger stuff
. I found that not only did I feel I had to take it easy, I really had no choice. No energy, tired quickly, was eating many little meals and lots of drinking.
I found the surgeons were very ready to say "oh yes, you'll be back to normal activity before you know it". Of course that is what we WANT to hear before our ops --- not often the case.
Do you have an ET Nurse (Ostomy Nurse) on board. Of all the professionals involved in my surgery/recovery, she was the most helpful, had the most info, was the most realistic. I credit my good recovery (physical, mental and emotional) to her.
If you don't have an ET nurse set up, please ask for one. They work through the hospitals. Mine even was the person who selected the stoma position. The surgeon said she knew best where on the right side to have it. Where my pants usually sit, where my tummy roll is, etc.
All the best,
