I'm home! Woo-hoo!

Hi there! I went to see the surgeon today (one week post op) and he removed all the staples... gee, they kind of stung coming out! Then he put on 12 steri-strips. I go back in 2 weeks to have those taken off, assuming they haven't fallen off by then.

DR asked me if I was eating OK, and I said I had Thai food the night before last. He said "you're nuts!" and I said "no, I specifically asked them not to use any nuts" His response was "well, you're a good test of my work!"

He mentioned the abscess again, and how lucky I was that it hadn't leaked. Also he said it was a good thing the antibiotics had ultimately gotten the infection under control because with the position of the abscess, which was right up against my bladder, I could likely have ended up with a fistula between the bladder and colon. No offense of course to my (((fistula sisters))), but there is somewhere I didn't need to go!

He released me to do anything I feel like doing except heavy lifting, and no driving for a few more days. And then he was really sweet, he said he always loves to walk into my room because I have a big smile for him and am such a positive person, and because I totally 'get' how it could have been sooo much worse. What a nice thing to say. I guess he has a lot of really cranky patients!

So to celebrate, my brother took me out to dinner tonight. It was great to get out of the house, but I'm tired now, so it's back to the trusty recliner for some more rest.

Hi Linda....

I'm overjoyed at how much better you are feeling!!!

Thanks for the updates. It sounds like you are your model patient. I know he must appreciate your big

I was just talking to my aunt tonight about how we sometimes forget how much our doctors appreciate their patients recoveries. At my post op appt, I gave mine a big hug and thanked her for all the support she gave me. I know it's their "job" and they took the "oath", but I know they like to feel appreciated too. Don't we all?

You are such a sweetie and I'm so happy your finally on the road to recovery!!!
