Hi and welcome, Joanne. There's so much information here: I'd just dive right in and start reading!

I'm just a few days post-op myself, so I won't always know what's normal, haha. But someone will.

How are you feeling?

Well, you're already ahead of me in the poo department! :D Haven't made that milestone yet. My surgery was three days after yours.

Not feeling too bad, actually, just weak. Glad you are already feeling better!

I've had less pills than I normally do because they seem to really hurt me when they go down. I've also got blisters on the edge on my dressings call gp for nurse to check she is off for a week! I was dreading the poop thought it would be painful but it was fine and made my tummy feel less bloated.

They must have some kind of replacement for the nurse, don't they?

Apparently not I've been to the gp instead now on antibiotics due to infection on the blisters by the wounds and chest infection  but today is the best I've felt having less pills but the boring liquid is doing my head in there is only so much soup and custard I can take lol. What are you eating and drinking?

How are BOTH of you feeling now? I don't remember every single detail from the first few weeks but happy to answer any questions and provide support, of course! The first 2 weeks is the hardest... there are huge physical, emotional, and psychological adjustments all happening, while we're nervous about doing something wrong and losing your go-to security blanket... food. Hang in there and just keep posting and hanging around the forum- you will find SO many people that have been in your shoes. You'll get through it- temporary... the long term benefit is life changing. :)
