My second castle story

I got back from the castle almost 7 months after the first visit to the castle. My ovary had decided to adhere itself to a ulcerated piece of my colon-hence ulcerative colitits, and stay there and grow. My nurse anestetis said I was a mess in there- howwonderful to know! I guess everything should be alright now as nothing is left in there except my small intestine and it can be expected to be removed next.
Sorry I'm not quite with it today I'm just not so happy about the whole thing, karela

My second castle story

Hi (((Karela))) and welcome! I moved your post over here to the Road Less Traveled forum, where there are more ladies who can relate to what you're going through.

I had most of my colon removed earlier this year, it isn't an easy surgery is it? Mine was for diverticulitis that wouldn't stay away. I'm six months post that surgery now and feeling pretty good except for right under the incision (it's a keloid). But my GI stuff all works great, it doesn't hurt when I eat anymore either!

When did you get home from the castle this last time? Are you still on pain meds? Because I was afraid of straining with constipation I didn't take pain meds once I got home from the colectomy... just Vioxx, which helped a lot, for ten days, and then an occasional Motrin after that.

I found sitting up extremely uncomfortable for quite a while, and had to use a tummy pillow to ride in the car. Sound familiar?

I hope you're remembering to get lots of rest, drink plenty of fluids and take frequent walks. Once a , always a Princess!
