going back into hospital wednesday for reversal surgery thursday to have my bowel reattached.. pretty major op and will most likely be in 7-10 days.. daughters birthday tomorrow so wont be around then.
will update ( if all goes well ) friday or saturday post surgery.
means it'll be another several weeks / moths out of action again but hopefully will also be the end of a pretty traumatic year.

All the best, Dean. IIRC the op means you'll soon be able to break wind rather than inflate a bag - something for Mrs M and the little Ms to look forward to!

Youve cut your hand off, and id like to see a little more space above your head. Also looks a little noisy... ;)

All the best. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Hi Dean - I've been off the forum for a bit so don't know the back story here but guessing you had a stoma. I had an ileostomy for four months (after sudden and unexpected emergency surgery following undiagnosed diverticulitis) a few years ago. My reversal went really well and everything back to normal.

Just wanted to wish you all the best for a speedy recovery! Hope your outcome is as successful as mine was!

Bio oil will help reduce the permanent scarring once the wounds are less raw - but apparently chicks dig scars! (The oil worked a treat on my bonce - there's a dent but it's skin coloured rather than an obvious scar.)

+1 for bio oil.

Can barely see the scars from my by-pass surgery (left arm wrist to elbow, left leg inside knee to ankle (artery and vein harvesting) and chest of course). I was sceptical but it did the job.
