Exactly 42 days since RC.

1. Lot of improvement over past week.
2. Constipation has gone away for the most part.
3. Not as exhausted, but still pretty tired a lot of the time.
4. Had follow up with Wound/Ostomy, everything looking good. Got some bags ordered from Hollister that
are easier to connect to the night bag.
5. She was able to get out of the bathtub by herself for the first time this evening.
6. Everything is looking up, slowly but surely. Urology meeting Monday.


I will continue to post weekly updates through her first CT Scan late in the month.just to continue documenting her process for others.

Hope this helps others.

Thanks,

James

James,

This helps MANY people! Thanks for posting. It is an encouragement and glad the wife's progress is going forward. From the many that have had major surgeries her recuperation should slowly build momentum.

Regards!

2. Stoma healing very well.
3. Constipation on and off (taking colaise and eating prunes).
4. Getting around a lot better, but still fatigued super easy.
5. Has not left the house yet as gets tired very easily, but is getting stronger.
6. No unexpected situations.
7. Wound ostomy check up appointment on Monday.
8. Urologist appointment a week after that.


I will continue to post weekly updates from here on out just to continue documenting her process for others.

Hope this helps others.
