There's another reversal surgery group I've joined and it really puts things in perspective and makes me realize 1-2 weeks - even 1-2 months is pretty early in recovery. (My surgery date was July 26th - I wrote June in my earlier post.) A guy on the site wrote today (he just had reversal surgery 3 weeks ago) that when he farts, he "poops a little"...when he has to poop and is on his way to the bathroom...he poops a little. That made me laugh and it was surprising to see the other 40-50 people who responded to his comment basically saying "me too!" So, I'm really encouraged by the times I have full control and try not to be too discouraged if there's a "blip" like the guy mentioned... It's easier some days than others, but I do believe from all the posts I've read from people further out, over time it does get better and better.
I hope your CEA test result is in the normal range for you now and it's a good appointment overall tomorrow!
I also hope that either you or one of your sisters can be a donor for your sister! It blows me away what can be done treatment-wise now. You can't get much better than a trial that's 100% successful - wow!
