APR recovery advice and sitting down
Hi Everyone. Had APR with permanent colostomy on 11th December. Was home after 6 days and think I am recovering well. Bag, which I was really concerned about, is proving much easier to manage than I imagined. Just wondering, as I know many of you have had a similar op, how long was it before you could sit down comfortably and do normal things, like visit the cinema etc. I am still quite sore underneath and have slight bleeding but stoma nurse seems to think this is nothing much to worry about in that it is to be expected. I am fine at home on recliner and soft sofa but went for a meal at the weekend and was very uncomfortable. Just want reassurance that there is light at the end of the tunnel😀. Did anyone buy any special cushions? Thanks in advance. So grateful that I have got this forum to turn to for advice and support. Thank you all.
