It sounds like you did real well, glad you didn't have too bad of a time and that you are eating well. It sounds like you should be a poster child for BC and RC. Good luck and keep up the good work.

So it's been a few weeks since I posted.
Had my R/C on Thurs 4/28. Was home following Thurs. 5/6. Went back to Dr on 5/10 to have staples removed. Then back to Dr & hospital to have pouchogram which turned out good, so in hospital overnight to have malecot and penrose drains/tubes removed. Back home again and cathing I/P. The cathing at hospital was a breeze and so far haven't had any problems with cathing. Staying on the schedule can be a hassle at times. I may be one of the few that didn't lose any weight. I couldn't wait to start eating. Haven't had any problem with taste of food or having to force myself to eat. Just don't eat as much at one sitting, but still eat enough over the course of the day. Good thing cuz I only weigh 111lbs. can't afford to lose any.
Just want to thank all of you for your support and info which definitly helped get through all of this.
