Well here it is. Time for my first surgery of two. I go to the hospital at 11am tomorrow and surgery at 1pm. We are removing my colon, large bowel, and left portion of my large intestines. Then he is going to tie everything up in a net and tack it up because of the pelvic floor dysfunction along with my GP. I am not expectin a bag, so let's pray that holds. I am just grateful to find some relief from extreme constipation.
In 3 to 6 months we will put in the pacer and feeding tube. We have to wait for the pacer first, which is very difficult for nutrition. I have 11 cases of Jevity 1Cal in my kitchen all ready to go. smiles
So with a tear in my eye, I am going forward through another door getting closer to finding my base to live from.
We all know what it is like to WAIT! Grrr
I cried so hard lastnight. Not from surgery fear, but from life expectency. You know my quality of life living with this disease.
My partner and I have been through 8 surgeries already. That is all I have been going through this whole time, then I get sick. Unreal! Can't be true!
Thank you all for helping me emotional and mentally prepared for the steps needed to move forward with surgery. I love you all and will post my results as soon as I get home.
