...but I think I'm now on the correct road to recovery. Yesterday was a long day with quite a few ups and downs as the digestive system was waking up after the emergency surgery. The good thing is that I have now gotten pain control which seems to work "on -tap" for the associated colic pains when they do come.
I showered myself and changed the ostomy bag this morning and I'm feeling refreshed and relaxed.
The progress is going to be steady but hopefully no major setbacks from now on, and my new Stoma is nice and pink, and slightly reduced in size from yesterday. All good signs.
My abdominal scar is a beauty! Pic attached... It is very uncomfortable, but not a type of pain which is worrying me.
Many thanks again to my family and friends for all the support over the last few days.
Think I might treat myself to a film now.
