Hi guys. Wednesday-Another good night sleep but felt drained & a little weak during yesterday. Had a phone call from stoma nurse & seeing them next Wednesday as fingers crossed I haven't any problems with Stanley the Stoma & I'm emptying & changing the bag ok. Had 'neighbours coffee morning' visit yesterday & a friend poppped in for tea in the afternoon. Fairly tired as didn't get a nap after lunch.
Today Thursday had appointment at doctors surgery to get dressing looked at where I'd split the skin coughing. Didn't fancy pulling it off myself & then not know how to deal with. Nurse said dressing definitely needed changing but was not infected. She called the doctor into the room to also look at cut point near to stoma that feels sore but that is also ok. Got some good advice & guidance re having stoma. I'm definitely Not drinking enough water. Apparently 2 litres or more which we worked out roughly as 10 tall glasses. Always have water with meal but don't always drink all. Everything else going well. I'm pleased & surprised that I sleep all night unaware of Stanley & no waking early & rushing to the loo! So all's good. B x
