Feeling Cured

November 18, 2014

It’s hard to believe that I’m on my 7th month after surgery already. As the title says, I’m feeling cured from it. It’s a wonderful feeling. These 7 months I haven’t gotten a sick spell or vomited even once. It almost feels like I’m in a dream. No more intense pain in my gut, no painful bloating, no tummy pain or nausea and best of all no waking up in the middle of the night in a lot of pain and not being able to get enough sleep.

Now, I’m not so foolish to think I won’t get sick anymore (haha if only). It is just the pain I had before the surgery was something different than regular illness and stomach bugs. It was an on-going nightmare that lasted for 27 years of my life.

I now know what a normal person is suppose to feel like. I love being able to crawl into bed at night and know I’m going to sleep through the night. I’m able to eat the foods I wasn’t able to eat before – though I’m going to be careful still, don’t want to go crazy and gain a lot of weight or something. haha

For those of you that didn’t see my post about the surgery – to make a long story short – there was a large part of my small intestine that was not working. It was scrunched up real tight like an according. It made for ‘almost’ a bowel obstruction. I’m guessing I lived with this birth defect for a long time because it slowly got worse and worse over time until it showed up on a CT scan and looked like intussusception.

It’s scary to think that all my life doctors have been giving me meds and telling me it won’t kill me and I’m fine. I just needed to manage the pain. To know that if it went on much longer it could have completely sealed up, caused a rupture in my gut, and made me septic – which can lead toย death. 0_0

Thank God it was caught!

I’m going to stick with the doctor I have now for as long as possible. LOL It’s just such a huge relief to not be sick like that anymore. Pain Free! I just had to share my happiness. XD

    That’s awesome that you don’t get the pain and nausea that you used to anymore! I’m glad that it was caught before it got any worse too. That’s great news that the surgery fixed all of those problems! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Good to hear that you’re better, and good on the doctor for catching it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Just for reference, I had to look up intussusception, and was quite disturbed by what I saw. I can only imagine how much worse it was actually feeling the pain. All hail the technological advancement that made the surgery successful. Anyways, hugs to you like Sakura is to her pillow. ๐Ÿ˜› Now there’s something worth celebrating!
