I’m writing this on my phone from my hospital bed, so apologies if the usual links etc don’t work.
I had a photo to add to but not sure if I can, but it is on my Instagram if you want to see it (I’ve probably hyped it up to much now).
Anyway, I checked in at 3pm, have seen one of the surgical team who did a very though check of my lungs, met the nurses looking after me, had blood taken (twice) and a cannula fitted (for fluids after midnight).
Just to remind you all, tomorrow I will have my internal pouch defunctioned by creating a new ileostomy (stoma). This will allow the pouch to rest, and I might then be able to go back to using it (although this seems unlikely.
I’ll try to update as much as I can, though I am expecting some good pain relief so might take a few days.
