I am scheduled to have my pouch removed on August 28th. It has been an extremely painful and emotional decision to come to. I have fought for 10 years and the lost. I now see it as not only the right decision, but the only decision. I have tried every trick in the book and all have failed. I am looking forward to feeling good again. I am looking forward to be able to live in the moment and experience the joy that life has to offer.
I know that I have rough recovery ahead of me, but am trying to focus on the long term goal. I want to thank you for all the support you have all given me while I traveled down this road. I would welcome any advice those that have been through this have offer. Whether it be practical advice about what to bring to the hospital, what to have on hand once I get home or advice on just how to cope. Thanks.
