Just a quick post to advise that I am finally back home after just over 2 weeks in hospital. My reversal operation seem to go well, but in fact it couldn't have gone worse. Three days after the reversal op I was given an emergency operation as I was going downhill fast. I'll omit the gory details, but after a lengthy op I ended up in intensive care and then 5 days in a high dependency unit and suffice to say I was touch and go for a while, the Docs said being fit was a major reason for me pulling through.
To top it all during the emergency op everything had to be reversed again, meaning I still have the bag. I also have an open wound which requires daily dressing and I've lost a stone and a half in weight (like I was fat anyway!). All this means my road to recovery is going to be a lot longer than I would have liked and I won't be able to draw any flyers for quite a while. Still I am determined to build myself back up again, take each day as it comes and get back on the bank when I can. In the mean time I'll have to be content reading blogs and magazines, thanks for all the support, see you soon.
