Surgery update.

Everything went as planned on Wednesday. I’ve had my stoma reversed and I now have a lovely line of staples running across one side of my tummy.

I’m nil-by-mouth because there is still a lot of gas trapped in my gut but once that passes, I’ll be able to start eating a soft diet. (I’m so bloated, I look like I’m three months pregnant).

Other than that, I’m moving around quite independently and, although I get tired quickly, I’m staying awake for longer now.

It’s the weekend now so I’m going to rest and go for short walks up and down the ward corridor so by Monday, hopefully, I’ll start paying some of that gas.
