Day 5: post-op….exercise and irrigation

Spoke to the physical therapist this morning. NO lifting for 8 weeks, but walking is OK. After 8 weeks, can begin doing stomach exercise, laying down and standing up, bringing belly button in like touching my backbone with it, while lifting legs one at a time and arms, one at a time.

Dr. Breyer said I can resume irrigation (colostomy not urostomy) in 30 days.

Will get the JP drain out tomorrow before I go home.

JP drain will come out tomorrow before I go home.

  1. Randy,

    Hope you are feeling better. I called the phone to see if you were there and I was told that you were taking more time to feel better. I guess it’s hard to keep you put. I am the same way and I will not let up and it ends up costing me. Never fails so I am trying not to think I am 21 again not that makes a difference I still give it my best shot. My appt for follow-up at the hospital was moved to Feb. 13th so I have more freedom. The Dr. must not be worried about me. I have not called the hospital to express any concerns.

    Sincerely,
    Shirley in Conn.
