I have adjusted fairly well to life with my stoma. The last few days though I have had a painful ache around it. If it continues tomorrow I plan to call my Stoma Nurse. My only other "side effect" has been the blood and mucus I pass through my anus. I am shocked by the amount and would swear that food might be slipping through if I didn't have an end illeostomy. (End illeo means my small intestines were completely snipped in two) This blood mucus passing has also lead to a few pass outs. I still don't have much control over my sphincters, so when I feel urge I have to quickly get to the bathroom. With all ready being prone to fainting the mad dash for the bathroom is more than my blood pressure can handle.
Well I am feeling really tired and kind of clammy so I am going to go and catch up on some Days of Our Lives. (Come on, how could I not get hooked on Days again?)
