HAI PUMP OUT TODAY!

Postby hart2hart » Tue Jan 21, 2020 6:09 pm

At Sloan now as Pete is having his Hai Pump
and Port out. We asked Dr D’Angelica’s surgical
assistant if we can have the pump! Hope so. This
is a very exciting day for us as 2011 looked bleak.
Our message to all is keep fighting, ask tons of
questions and get more than one opinion. We are
so grateful for The Colon Club as that’s how we
found Dr Kemeny and Dr D’Angelica! They get
cookies for life! On another positive note Dr D’s
surgical assistant said the Codman Pump is coming back!
Hip Hip Hooray! I’ll let ya al know if we get to keep
the pump tomorrow! JulieJ you soon?
Love to all, you are ALL Special People!

Awesome news!!! I'm so happy for you both! :D :D :D

I'm due to have mine removed very soon! I already had my pre-surgical appointment with Dr. D'A. Tell me how it goes, okay? Did it hurt? Is the incision closed with glue?

It'll be weird to be able to go through regular TSA and not have to request the body scanner. I'm looking forward to that since I've almost missed a few flights while they tried to locate a "female agent" to scan me. I didn't care if it was a man, a woman, or a chihuahua as long as I didn't miss my flight, but apparently it's regulations. :roll: :D

Hugs to you both!
