I have not posted in a while and wanted to give everyone an updated. I had my TME/Live resection done April 3rd. It was rough waking up and a bit painful, but controllable. Getting up for the walks were tough but again tolerable especially with my pain button right there hands away.
I have my temp ileostomy so that will be something I need to work on changing and getting used to but not so bad.
Now I am nervous about the staple removals. If it isn't one thing its another to worry about.
My surgery was suppose to be laparoscopic but the liver resection unfortunately couldn't even though they said they would try. So ofc I had a bigger cut there in that area across my abdomen, which is the most painful of all the cuts.
Healing up and getting better. Staples removal scared. let me know your experience with the staple removal, nervous mostly about belly button area.
