I got a call from the hospital this afternoon, my surgeon had a cancellation so they offered it to me. The only issue I have is that it’s for next week so very little time to prepare mentally. I know I’ve been a little impatient about getting my stoma removed but now that it’s less than two weeks away, I’m a bit nervous. Not because it’s surgery though, it’s more what comes after; the pooping “normally” and what that entails. I’m sure I’ll be fine but I guess we’ll see.
