More Adventures in Recuperation, #1

I’m now resting in a hoospital room. The surgery covered everything at once, so as long as the re-introduction to food goes carefully, all should be well. Dressings from the stoma and incision sites were removed and replaced this morning. I’ll be going on sips of clear fluid. The NG tube is still in, which make this harmless. My surgeon said he was able to visibly identfy the nerves on the right side of my rectal stump, and that it usually only takes enervation from one side to make things work correctly.

    G’Day Wesley

    Congratulations on coming through the surgery. Take it easy (as if you would not). Looking forward to seeing more of your writings.

    Cheers! Ian
