Today was the day that the spot was marked for my stoma. Yes, Elise its a bit early because my surgeon is on vacation next week. Lets hope my surgeon comes back from his vacation well rested rather than hungover. There was a revolving door to my room today as I met with nurses, ostomy nurses, anasthesiologists, and lab techs.
I did find out today that the bowel prep is no worse than for a colonoscopy but also not any easier. After being provided my bowel prep instructions I noticed the word enema missing from the list. When I asked my surgeon about the omission I was told that they would administer the enema for me at the hospital. I'm sorry but there are some things an individual needs to do on their own and administering an enema is one. Privacy people!!!!!!!!!!!
