Lotech,

(Soon to be Hitech),

Sounds like the waiting is almost over. There can't be a whole lot more hoops for you to jump through. We want to hear how well the recovery and adjustment to new normal is going.

Seriously wishing you and yours the best.

Best,
Jack

Had a colonoscopy yesterday, one small polyp found, Doc wasn't alarmned about it, waiting for pathology report.
Today went to see ostonomy nurse, She had a fantastic atittude made me feel better about procedure. showed me the appliances and marked my belly for stoma locations 2 locations. they are covered in plastic and will be used by Doctor performing my surgery. I will get a stoma either way for bag or j pouche. the stoma looks odd but I'm told I'll get used to it. Well presurgery screening tomorrow, getting close to D day!!!
