So I was nervous giving it another go after my surgery. ( I did have a completely laparoscopic surgery, so if you had an open surgery, it could be a different experience.) If I’m going to be honest here, it was difficult at first. So don’t get discouraged if it’s not what you think it will be right off the bat. Plus, I still had a wound that was very close by that was trying to heal up and forced us to take things even slower.
I knew I would no longer have to worry about the whole holding-it-in thing, but other concerns come along with it. It was probably closer to six months until I felt like we were really back to the way things should be.
I’m sure it reacts in different ways for different people, but there’s a good chance your body will undergo some big changes, one way or another.
This was something I wasn’t quite ready for prior to my surgery. ) and for most of my adult life, I have weighed between 100-110 lbs.
My stomach might be hurting and I’d be concerned about upsetting it even more. But I love my husband and I know that sex is an important part of a healthy, long-term relationship. I am very glad that I have an understanding husband who is willing to be patient and let me take it at my pace.
And that’s where I’ve remained for the past couple of years.When you have surgery to remove your colon and to get an ostomy, your body sometimes reacts in unexpected ways.I can’t explain why it does what it does, but when you majorly alter your body’s normal functions, then it is going to impact other things, as well.I have debated talking about this because it does not always seem acceptable for a thin person to talk about weight issues. Of course there are a few outliers in there and to be even more specific, my range was really between 103-108 lbs and would fluctuate between those fairly often. And I knew that if I got below 103 lbs that I was losing too much weight and needed to put a little more on, and if I got over 108 lbs I would start noticing it (in my face mostly) and would do what I needed to drop a pound or two.You usually get dismissed as either being ridiculous for worrying about your weight or as bragging about how skinny you are. I think this is an important topic and something that changed for me over the past few years that I did not necessarily expect when I first decided to have this surgery. Even once I got up to 109 or 110, without weighing myself, I would know that I was a little higher than I liked to be.
