To all my adhesion friends,Well here I am post-op not doing crash hot but will be fine.The surgery went for about seven hours and the first thing I said to my husband was Where am I ? and when he said "My bed" I was over the moon.I didnt have to go icu.The surgeon said everything went fine,but he did not take down all adhesions in the right hand pelvic area because he said that the cut bein on the right side of the middle made it difficult to get access to that corner plus my blood pressure was dropping too fast so he said when he reverses the ileosotomy he will definitely get them then.I have a marcaine epidural infusion in at the moment so caannot feel very much pain.However it has to come out today as it has been in five daysso I m not looking forwaard to that.I had to have a blood transfusion of four bags last night because I was rather flat.That went well but have got fluid on the lungs at the moment.They are giving me Lasix so Iam starting to feel a bit better.The gastric tube is working well and ileosotomy is also working so thats a good sign.He said the adhesions were "very extensive especially in the lower abdominal area but my neo-bladder was looking great.The crunch will come when I am free of the infusion and I start eating and see if I have pain.I was adding up the other day and realized that I havent had a meal since may 1999,just free fluids with some sloppy mashed potatoes and pumpkin.Well I am getting tirednow but I know that I wouldnt even be here at this stage if it wasnt for my international friends that have given me such courage to keep going on.Thank you again Love always Robyne.
