Phew so tired. Quick update, it’s day… 8?… post op.
Surgeon seems hopeful that they got it all, I think the procedure was 10 hours ish? Was in ICU for a day or two after and moved to the ward.
Biggest complication thus far is too much fluid where it’s not supposed to be, have three drains and a nasal gastric tube (Ugh! Awful! Bad!) to help with that. Still just one stoma staples from pubis to sternum and no more belly button (looks like I’m a clone after all!)
More when I can, love you all!!
Good to hear that it mostly went well!
