HI everyone, the hypaque enema went great, anastomosis site looks great and no leaking noted. surgery at 8 am tomorrow. Another positive thing about it all, I was able to hold in the solution without being incontinent, doc said that it is a good sign for muscle control... I'll update when I can.. Petrina

I bet you are so relieved that this day is already here. I'm sure you will do just fine and you will be back home soon and healing. I heard that this surgery is a piece of cake compared to the first one. Good luck and let us know how you are feeling. I'm having mine done probably in November. I'll be thinking of you.

Hi Petrina

I just wanted you to know that you will not "walk alone" tomorrow morning - as soon as I get to work @ 8am - I will say a prayer for you and am hoping for the very best for you always!

Thank you for your post last night - you were sweet and tender and just being you :)

Good things have to work out for someone special like you :)

We await your surgery results and when you are feeling up to it, I know we will hear back from you.

All the best tomorrow!
-Craig

Thanks for the quick update! You must have been posting live from the recovery room.
So glad it has gone so well.

Here's a treat from da Rock!

Tiger Woods in Newfoundland

Sent on a golf tour in Newfoundland, Tiger Woods drives his new Ford Fusion into a petrol station in a remote part of the countryside. The pump attendant, obviously knows nothing about golf, greets him in a typical Newfoundlander manner completely unaware of who the golfing pro is.

"Top of the mornin' to yer, sir" says the attendant.

Tiger nods a quick "hello" and bends forward to pick up the nozzle. As he does so, two tees fall out of his shirt pocket onto the ground.

"What are dose?" Asks the attendant.

"They're called tees," replies Tiger.

"Well, what on god's earth are dey for?" inquires the attendant.

"They're for resting my balls on when I'm driving", says Tiger.

"Lardthunderin!", says the Newfoundlander, "Ford tinks of everyting!"

Be Well!! Rob; in Van

Hi Petrina,
Can't believe you girl.. you're amazing. Do they have computers in the recovery room or something. I'm so happy that you're doing so well. Will continue to pray for your quick recovery.

God Bless You,

Hi everyone, I am at home and resting, some pain/discomfort, but doing well. My surgeon left the old ostomy site opena nd packed with a wet to dry dressing until friday and then he will stitch it together. He said this will prevernt any infection since this area is at high risk of developing a infection. since both me and my husband are nurses, we can take care of it at home, he will do he packing for me once a day till friday.. I still keep feeling for the ileostomy, weird not having it there. I only had it for 3 1/2 mths, but that felt like a lifetime. I haven't had any incontinence, passed some stool with no problem, so things are working well so far. Thanks for all the well wishes... You are all my idols.. Petrina

wow I think that is great you are home already and doing so well. Seriously, I was in 6 days with my takedown. Could not get my colon to MOVE, slower than anything. I think my surgeon must overly manipulate the colon or something, she said about a week in is standard. I agree it is a strange to be without the bag- but you will get used to the new normal in no time :)

How are you doing ? I had my reversal Oct.5 2009. Back in hospital for c-diff infection on Oct 19... I am doing much better now (and very glad to be home again ) I do have 8-10 bm's a day though and am very sore down there. I had my ileostomy for 8 months and DO not miss it ! I am hoping things start to improve soon. The doc said it can take a few months for my j-pouch to learn to function as a colon.. Am wondering how you are. Beth
