i came home today 8 days after surgery. The colostomy reversal was a success and the dr found no cancer. I was terrified I'd wake up on the re\covery to hear they'd found more cancer, but I woke up in my room the next day , remembering not even remembering the recovery room. I had to call my husband to ask and I dialed 2 wrong numbers, because I was so groggy.
This recovery was
the hardest probably because it was the 3rd one and the chemo.
I had to have blood transfusions on the 3rd day post op. The drthinks my leaky bladder was cause by adhesions and he removedthem. I guess it worked
too well, because when they removed the catheter I couldn't go at all and had to come homewith it. I have a mild uti, but they said anti biotics won't do much good while the catheter is in and they will try and take it out again on my post op visit Thursday and then start anti biotics. I haven't pooped yet, but can tell it it will be soon. I have been passing gas for days and they gave me a swig of MOM before we left. The nurses were all geat except one who had to be asked for a fresh gown and change of sheets

nd seemed to resent being asked. It is a teaching hospital ( UC Davis) and so I was seen by residenst each day for about 60 seconds who told me what was the plan. Later my Dr., the attending would come back and give me a completely different plan! He has been wond erful since this ordeal began. During each of my recoveries I had one day of total emotion where the tears just flowed. This time I was walking down the corridir and heard some residents joking about a mon that had ie in the ER. I really fell apart. My Dr apoplogized and said that should never happen where apatient or family could hear, but that dr's ab nurses often do this to relievestress, especially in the ER where things happen so
fast andwhen a patient dies dr's often 2nd guess them selves. I know he is right. Anyway, gotta rest. hope
all is well.

I am glad that you are home and doing okay. I know about the talking about patients, I used to be a scrub nurse in a cardiac OR. And we would often talk about a hard case, or a patient that had died, but we made sure that we either did it in the OR, or the Lounge, to be talking about it in the hall is uncalled for. And joking about it is even worse.

But for you the worst is over, glad that they didnt find any more cancer. Go rest and do the happy dance when your up to it.

But most of all be a good princess.
