One week post-op


I had my surgery a week ago and Im home and I can safely say that it was the best decision I have made!

When they went in they had found more problems than just the stricture in my small bowel and my attached appendix, they found that a bit of the transverse colon had attached to the small bowel and had been pulled down so that was causing me alot of bother. so in the end they did a right Hemicolectomy.

I am now off my crohns medication and the ensure drinks and can pretty much eat normally now. I am so pleased I can now eat things that would cause me pain. Its hard to get use to not being in constant pain or expecting pain when ever I eat.

I see the dietitian at the end of the month and Ill see the surgeon in 6 weeks.

They were very pleased with my recovery and I think I have shocked alot of people with just how quickly I have bounced back from the surgery, Im too stubborn to let things stop me but I will certainly be careful and take things easy.

I can say this is the best I have felt in a long time and I feel like I have a new lease of life now!

Bring on what the future holds!!!
