Updating blog from the Churchill Hospital, Oxford, UK as I had the reversal yesterday preformed by Mr Bruce George, all seem to go to plan and i’m feeling well. Passing things so everything seems to be working as it should be for now! 🙂
Looking to be discharged tomorrow or Sunday at the latest as they are more than impressed with my recovery so far.
Whilst in hospital I was visited by Nicky Samways, Fran Woodhouse & Cat Bowes (all stoma nurses) who I had met previously, they are great at putting your mind at ease and showing you how to care for your stoma and equipment involved.
All nurses looking after me were excellent but there is always one that stands out from the crowd ‘Roger’ a senior staff nurse originally from the Philippines, awesome man in every way who took the time to talk about anything and everything whilst administering my drugs & to my family when they were in (even told me about the stash of milkshake energy drinks you could help yourself to) 🙂
iPad got a hammering over the 5 days, how did people get on without them! Also managed to use my electronic cigarette in my room (when others not looking!) as I don’t think they are allowed (but not sure why as it has helped me kick the habit of analogue cigarettes!)
Stoma took around 4 days to start working, once this was ok Mr George instructed I could go home to recuperate….
