Day 5 (minor TMI warning)
So, I didn’t have a good night last night because I’ve had some trapped wind which has been putting pressure on my stomach, keeping me awake. I’m on oral paracetamol which is keeping my pain at a minimum and I know that the more I move, the easier it’ll pass.
Loop-ileostomy (dubbed Blob 2.0) is working at the moment and they’ve started me on solid food now so the output should become a bit thicker. Hopefully, it’ll help with the slight light-headedness I’ve been having after each excursion to the bathroom. The doctor said I’m a very little bit malnourished so eating solids should give me back some strength. Provided that all works, I should be going home by Wednesday, fingers crossed.
