Surgery news

After visiting my consultant (and ANOTHER bloody cock up with appointments!!) the decision has been made.

My hernia is causing too many problems and so my pouch surgery is being brought forward…. to April.

I’m really anxious and nervous but I am in the very safe hands of Mr Brown, my surgeon.

No exact date as yet as I need a couple of tests before we can book it in but he has said it will be April.

It’s been a bit of a big day between the news from hospital and today we moved house!

So just a very quick post from me today, thanks so much for all the texts, emails and kind messages wishing me luck.

Loads of love

Two weeks ago I went into hospital.

One week ago I had my colon removed and an ileostomy put in place.

One week ago almost to the hour I was in the High Dependency Unit.

Tonight I’m in my own bed with my doggy.

The body is an awesome thing!
