Day 253 Sat 21/08/10 - If you are squeamish don't look!

Sorry chaps, I did say I wasn't going to write for a bit but can't keep away...

And for those that are squeamish, don't scroll down...this is for people out there who may read this and have something similar..it looks frightening at first but our bodies are amazing things if you look after them!!!

I had my first bath since before my op on Jan 20th...It was a bit of an occassion as Charlotte had brought me some Badedas for my birthday and unfortunately I haven't been able to use it until a couple of hours ago...my last dressing came off my stomach as well, after 2 months of healing up and as Stanley is now safely back where he should be it was time for the long awaited bath...I even had a beer, something I used to enjoy after a long week!

2 weeks after stanley was put back...Mid July!



Next one a couple of weeks later:




And a couple of hours ago - now things have settled I can start doing a few sit-ups to get rid of the tummy!



That bath was a real milestone...



Any way off to bed now, too much excitement for one day!

    You're right - our bodies are amazing things.
    Glad you enjoyed the bath and the beer. The 2 go together so well!
    LOVE the after photo - it was worth waiting for. You look so slim and handsome! Your baby girl is a beauty too.

    Probably a silly question Tony, but why was your stoma on the right hand side & not left?

  5. Not silly Carole...I had what was technically an Ileostomy which was situated just before where the small intestine joins the large one which I believe is on the right :-)
