I am currently just over two weeks post surgery and I am recovering very fast. I am going back to work earlier than planned, as I feel so well. I feel like it will be good for me to get back to a normal life and be at work. Sitting at home and thinking about everything all day is no fun. The second surgery did not go to plan, as you are already aware, but I do have news regarding the next surgery and the plan moving forward. Lots of you have been asking me for an update, following my appointment with the new consultant, so I am sharing this news with you.
So, due to my bowel being stuck to my uterus, I was advised to have bowel prep prior to my surgery to make sure my colon was completely empty, so they were less likely to perforate it. I have only taken a stool softener a handful of times (mainly after my last laparoscopy), so I guess I had no idea how bad it would be. My consultant told me “your next blog post will write itself during your Picolax experience!” Lets just say I went into my operation feeling completely empty & bloat free, and here I am letting you know the gory details.
